Why Mechanical Engineering at Maryland?
"As the daughter of two parents from a developing country, I have become all too familiar with the problems that 90% of the world must face on a daily basis. I chose mechanical engineering after realizing that I had a great passion for the environment and its preservation. Few schools have a completely separate and accredited environmental engineering program, because of this I decided to pursue mechanical engineering. My degree can also function as a great background for my road to graduate school, where I plan to pursue a Ph.D. at one of the top schools in the nation for my field of interest. The Department gave me the opportunity to jumpstart my graduate school plans by putting me in research labs and providing me with hands-on experience."
