Why Mechanical Engineering at Maryland?
Growing up around the University of Maryland made it feel like a home for me even before I began my undergraduate career there. I was aware of its standing as a research institution, so choosing to attend was an easy decision for me. However, picking a major proved to be a more difficult choice because I had several interests, but limited understanding on which path was best for me. I choose to do mechanical engineering after a year of meeting with advisers, speaking with other students, and conducting my own investigations online. That choice was a significant turning point in my college career. The department was, and has been, a source of key opportunities including research, scholarships, networking and mentoring, to name a few. If I could go through the undergraduate application process again, I would confidently choose to study mechanical engineering at University of Maryland.
