UAH to Launch New Bachelor’s Program in Fall 2022
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) – To bridge the gap between engineering theory and technical application for full-time, non-traditional students, the University of Alabama at Huntsville will launch a new bachelor’s degree program in fall 2022 .
According to UAH, the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) is designed to meet the needs of students who wish to pursue a career in applied engineering. It is also designed to prepare students in this major to take advantage of the opportunities currently available to highly skilled technical workers.
“One of the exciting things about this program is that we have a strong group of students who are currently working in industry on fascinating topics such as the Space Launch System and other cutting-edge research technologies,” said said Dr. Alisa Henrie, clinical assistant. professor of engineering technology.
The BSET program enables students to have a career and an education. Compulsory courses are offered at least once a year and can be taken remotely or hybridized.
According to UAH, almost all courses are accelerated so they can be completed in seven weeks instead of 14.
According to Dr. Henrie, the BSET program is designed to help meet the growing demand for skilled workers in northern Alabama and surrounding areas as industries such as aerospace and aviation, automotive and the manufacturing of advanced metals and materials is expanding.
A senior capstone experience will provide students with experience working in teams and will equip them with business skills such as project management, budgeting, resource allocation, communication and more.
In the new Engineering Technology Lab, students will have a foundation in engineering and engineering theories as well as hands-on experience. The lab can be used by students on campus and those who will be remote, including a 3D printer, electrical circuit analysis equipment, laser cutter, and soldering stations.
