The Alabama Power Academic Excellence Program (AEP) enhances the recruitment and retention of minority engineering students at Auburn University. We help make counselors and teachers at high schools and community colleges aware of opportunities in engineering. We also organize collaborative learning activities, the Interactive Learning Lab, and peer tutoring. Our program is nationally recognized and has been in existence since 1997. We're proud to boast that the AEP has been the catalyst for graduating some of the nation's brightest minority engineering students.
