The A. James Clark School of Engineering provides undergraduate and graduate students outstanding resources for their academic pursuits—innovative research opportunities, world-renowned faculty and state-of-the-art facilities. But that's not all you'll find here. You'll also be part of the University of Maryland community, which offers its own array of resources and opportunities to learn, grow and have fun.
A Great Place to Put an Engineering School
The University of Maryland is a research university—more than 3,000 research projects are underway here at any one time. It's also a large and vibrant community with many things to do. On campus, you'll find nationally ranked sports teams, great theater, music and arts, and clubs and organizations for every interest. Washington, D.C., and Baltimore are close by, with mountains in western Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean to the east. Of course, you can't beat the steamed crabs. At the Clark School, you'll find that it's a real advantage to be a part of the University of Maryland.
