The Freshman Engineering Program at The University of Alabama College of Engineering offers a first-year experience for all engineering and computer science students that is designed to both motivate and engage our students. Through the FEP, we introduce students to the exciting careers in engineering and teach them the valuable aspects of working in teams.
Through the FEP, we offer a small school atmosphere supported by all the resources of a large university. Also associated with the FEP are courses in calculus, chemistry, English and physics. The overarching goal is for students to be excited about a career in engineering or computer science and be prepared with the core knowledge in math, science, English and engineering to be successful in their later years on campus.
All engineering and computer science majors take a common first-year program that:
- Introduces students to the fields of engineering and computer science
- Ensures that all students have the skill sets necessary to successfully complete their second-year engineering courses
- Illustrates the relevance of mathematics and science to the field of engineering
