EGR-Engineering Courses

Courses

EGR 102. Engineering LLC Seminar. 0 Hours.

The Engineering Living Learning Community (LLC) is designed to strengthen students' first year of college while fostering a sense of community. The living-learning community extends learning from the classroom into the residence hall where students participate in structured programs built around academics, common interests, and shared goals. This program will provide scholars with a solid foundation for the successful completion of an engineering degree. Programming within the LLC is a partnership between the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life and the UAB School of Engineering.
