The University of Alabama in Huntsville Reviews
The University of Alabama in Huntsville is an amazing school for engineering and nursing majors! Academics and programs are top notch and faculty are committed to finding graduates jobs after graduating. People are nice, food is excellent, and housing is phenomenal. Very nice school.
Honors represent! Between amazing professors, scholarships, housing, and opportunities, this was 100% the right choice for me. I've had tons of research and leadership opportunities, and I've had some great times -- Bob Ross Crew, Pinecone Club, multiple weekly ACE events!
UAH overall is a fairly small school, and as a current Computer Science major feels very welcoming and personal compared to other schools. Cost wise out of state it's a bit high, but roughly comparable to other schools. Location wise it has one massive advantage for a STEM major- the Redstone Arsenal. One of the biggest hotspots in the country for engineering research and other security-related jobs, and the defense industry is growing rapidly. Internships and Co-ops are often local, and most larger companies have a building or three in Huntsville(or on the Arsenal). Many professors know someone or are themselves former employees of said companies, helping students get their foot in the door for internships and jobs.
