Our events focus on the continued success of our alumni and strive to introduce potential students to the kind of experience they can expect from a UAB Master of Engineering with a Concentration in Information Engineering Management. When you come to UAB Engineering, you get so much more than a degree, you become part of a community. In addition to strong resume credentials, you get a powerful professional network.

Here at IEM we love to share what we know with professionals like you! Check here to learn when someone from the program is going to speak at an event, or if we're hosting an event here at UAB. We often partner with local businesses, like the Innovation Depot, to help give business professionals looking to create a startup the right footing to stand on.
