Alaska Hydrokinetic Energy Research Center (AHERC)
Video: With seven campuses across Alaska, we are home to more than 11,000 students from all over the world — each in pursuit of something extraordinary. Whether you're looking for a greater sense of purpose or a true sense of belonging, the UAF community lives authentically, believing that life is what you make of it, that knowledge is indeed power, and that a natural curiosity about the world around you will always be your best GPS.
