Why Mechanical Engineering at Maryland?
Unsure about whether or not I wanted to study engineering, I attended several open houses and overnights on campus. The students I met were extremely welcoming and passionate about their engineering departments, spreading their excitement to me. I chose the University of Maryland because of the sense of community that I felt radiating from within the engineering school. The mechanical engineering department is no exception. The department plans multiple events to bring mechanical students and faculty together as a community, and I truly feel connected to the people in my department. Additionally, on the academic side, I have the opportunity to tailor the focus of my major to my specific interests, which for me is design. I feel like being a MechE has more than prepared me for the next steps in my educational path, pursuing a masters degree in design. I highly recommend mechanical engineering at Maryland to any interested student.
