Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University (AAMU) is a historic, student-friendly and community-focused institution of higher learning. Reflecting on its heritage as a historical black college and university (HBCU) and a traditional 1890 land-grant institution, AAMU functions as a teaching, research and public service institution, including extension.
Founded in 1875 by a former slave, Dr. William Hooper Councill, AAMU is a dynamic and progressive institution with a strong commitment to academic excellence.
The serene, intimate campus is situated on “The Hill,” only a short distance from downtown Huntsville, the site of the school’s founding.
The University offers contemporary baccalaureate, master’s, educational specialist and doctoral level degrees to prepare students for careers in the arts, sciences, business, engineering, education, agriculture and technology.
As a center of excellence, the University is dedicated to providing a student-centered educational environment for the emergence of scholars, scientists, leaders and critical thinkers, who are equipped to excel through their contributions and leadership in a 21st century national and global society.
Innovative and creative research is what you find at Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University. The Division of Research and Economic Development at Alabama A&M University is working with great teams of talented researchers and students on a wide range of cutting edge and novel projects.
The results from those projects are leading to impactful benefits for the whole world.
While one team in agriculture is working on biofuel as alternative energy, another team from engineering is bringing smart technologies and artificial intelligence to improve efficiency and decision making.
