The College of Engineering at the University of South Alabama is recognized for the quality of its graduates. Its graduates have done well in industrial and government careers, not only in the local Gulf Coast region, but also nationally and internationally. Its graduates have often continued their education in some of the most respected graduate schools in the country.
The College has four academic departments and 40 full-time faculty positions. It offers
five baccalaureate degrees, four masters degrees, and a doctoral degree in systems
engineering. Our enrollment for Fall of 2016 includes 1922 undergraduate students
and 96 masters students. In 2015-2016 the College awarded 162 undergraduate degrees
and 25 masters degrees.
Among the strengths of the college cited by its Industrial Advisory Board are its location, its affordability, and the fact that its graduates have a good hands-on technical image. On the other hand, some feel that the College has not marketed itself heavily enough and therefore lacks visibility and name recognition of other engineering colleges throughout the Southeast.
The foundation of the College of Engineering is its excellent faculty with their dedication to teaching and the researching of new knowledge. All professors have doctorates and have come to USA from some of the finest universities in existence.
