"It's becoming increasingly important that students view their choice for college as an investment. Prospective students are coming to realize that a diploma from UAH provides them with great value," says UAH President Robert Altenkirch. "The quality of our faculty and the opportunity to conduct hands-on research and gain practical experience through internships enhances their knowledge and helps develop their skills. UAH students are very well prepared upon graduation and are highly qualified to enter the workforce."
The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) set records this fall for total enrollment, undergraduate and graduate students combined, as well as for the size of its freshman class. At the same time, this incoming freshmen class also had the highest average ACT score in the school's history. Total enrollment on the 10th day of class was 7,866, an increase of 518 students, 7.1 percent over the Fall 2014 enrollment of 7,348. New transfer students ...

"By our migrating and concentrating various segments of agricultural production in certain regions of the country, it did provide us with a lot of economies of scale and a lot of quality food, but is it sustainable?" Dr. McNider asks.
Is the way the United States raises its food sustainable and reliable for our future? Agricultural migration and how the United States might plan for more sustainable food production will be the topics of an Oct. 21-23 workshop in Boulder, Colo., being planned by researchers from UAH and their collaborators at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in a attempt to answer that question.

"They wanted to learn from me as much as they wanted to teach me," Kari Potter, recent UAH nursing grad and a Health Justice Intern for the Native Health Initiative (NHI) says. "They'd ask, "What would you do for this?" And then they'd talk about what they do, which is practice-based evidence. A curandera never does any treatment until she's tried it herself."
Kari Potter had never before thought about how many normal-sized marshmallows she could fit into her mouth at once, but now she needed an answer. The question was one of five labeled "fun" but also "the most important" on her application to become a Health Justice Intern for the Native Health Initiative (NHI). So in the end, she put her own twist on it.

"This is a great opportunity for parents and students to learn more about a wide variety of universities in one place,” says Ashley Miller, Assistant Director of Admissions at UAH. “Each institution will have a booth manned by at least one representative who can answer questions about admissions requirements, financial aid packages, and academic offerings. It’s a can’t-miss event for any family with a college-bound student!"
On Thursday, Sept. 3, from 6 to 8 p.m., The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) will host the Madison County College & Career Fair Parents Night.

"It allows students to gain experience in a completely different setting," Dr. Bernhard Vogler, associate professor of chemistry and the program's director, says. "They get to work with instruments and methods that are not available to everyone and make new observations when it comes to repeated tasks. Ideally, this will then motivate them to explore new avenues both academically and professionally."
The islands of the Bahamas are well known for their sandy beaches and laid-back atmosphere. They are less well known for their architecture and infrastructure. That's something Dominic Hanna, a senior civil engineering major at UAH, is hoping to change when he one day returns to his homeland. "The U.S. is more developed, so I want to spend a good bit of time here to get experience," he says. "There's a lot I can learn to make life easier for peop...

Doyle decided to apply to a prestigious summer internship program offered by the University of Virginia School of Medicine. "Having already participated in a variety of engineering research projects," he says, "I thought it would be great to use my empty summer to further my medical research experience." He was fortunate enough be accepted, spending two months in the Abbas Lab alongside assistant professor of radiation and oncology Dr. Tarek Abbas.
Steven Doyle has had his sights set on the future since he was a child. "Growing up I remember watching various documentaries with my parents on the topics of space and engineering," says the Hillsdale, N.J., native. "From that day, I became fascinated with aerospace engineering and the long line of technological advances that would need to be addressed before greater space endeavors could be done."

High on Lee's academic wish list is a plan that includes developing an atmospheric chemistry program at UAH - especially focusing on aerosols. "We have a great program for gas phase species (ozone) here, and I would like to expand the program by including aerosol research. The role of aerosols in climate, air quality and human health is more complex than trace gases and so much less understood. We would also be conducting laboratory experiments and field work. I hope a new program will attract motivated graduate students."
Shanhu Lee was a small girl growing up in Yanji, China, when she became "obsessive" about collecting "pretty" photographs of space, rockets and oceans from The National Geographic magazine. Lee's photo collection eventually prompted her to make her own earth science magazine.

"It's a great opportunity for the students to conduct independent research while at the same time benefiting from the individualized attention that their advisor can give them," Dr. William Wilkerson, Honors College Dean, says. "And because the students are free to pursue their passion regardless of their major, the results are often interdisciplinary in scope. I've been so impressed."
From his sunny, book-lined office in the heart of the Honors Community in Frank Franz Hall, Dr. William Wilkerson reflects back on his first year as Dean of the new College. "I've really enjoyed it," he says. "It's grown so much from the program that it once was, and it's gratifying to be able to see many of the initiatives I envisioned come to fruition over the last few months."

"I believe UAH is one of the best places to conduct cybersecurity research in the country," said Dr. Jae H. Park, Associate Professor of Information Systems, Management, and Marketing. "In addition, UAH has a unique interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Program involving three colleges within the university: Business Administration, Engineering and Science. This means students can have more options and better opportunities to learn and conduct cybersecurity research from varied perspectives."
"No single technology can be a silver bullet making our personal information safe and secure," said Dr. Jae H. Park, Associate Professor of Information Systems, Management, and Marketing at UAH. "Nevertheless, with proper orchestration of technological solutions, education and real world practice, I believe we can find reasonable sweet spots that can provide good enough security and privacy while still delivering desirable services." Park, a new ...
