Visit Campus

A great way to explore mechanical engineering as a major and to find out more about the Clark School of Engineering is by visiting campus. There are several regularly scheduled options available:

  • Engineering Information Sessions
    Fridays from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. the Clark School hosts an Engineering Information Session. To find out more, please visit the Clark School Information Sessions web page.
  • Maryland Day
    Join us for this campus-wide event which takes place every year on the last Saturday in April. Come out and tour exciting campus facilities (the Wind Tunnel, the Space Systems Lab, and the Virtual Reality Lab would be a good start) and chat with faculty, students, and staff, at the information fair.
  • Mechanical Engineering Design Day
    Every semester our senior capstone class presents prototypes of their design projects. Projects are formally judged by the faculty but visitors can also participate by voting for the People’s Choice Awards.  To find out when Design Day is scheduled, keep an eye on our Upcoming Events or our Facebook page
  • Attend a class/Visit a lab
    Mr. Fitzgerald Walker (Academic Advisor Manager, Outreach & Recruitment Undergraduate Studies) at fwalker@umd.edu will be happy to arrange for you to tour the Clark School with an engineering student, attend a class or visit a research lab.  The most common choices are usually robotics, energy, and the ever –popular Terps Racing auto design lab.
