Engineering a bright future

retro insideSigns for Engineering, December 1966. Pictured are Joseph H. Appleton, professor of civil engineering (right), and Don Bowermann, president of the Birmingham Chapter of the American Institute of Industrial Engineers, which provided funding for the lettering on the building. Appleton later would become director of the Engineering Division (1967-71) and the first dean of the School of Engineering (1971-78). The engineering program, which began in the 1940s, was the first non-health program in which UAB students could complete all of their coursework in Birmingham. Today, the school collaborates with many other units on campus, has a presence in six campus buildings and offers multiple degrees that are wholly online.
