Every year, Aviation Week Network names its class of “20 Twenties,” young engineers already making their mark. Two Clark School students, Kruti Bhingradiya and Madelyne Rossman, were named among them. At the same time, the Clark School’s International Genetically Engineered Medicine (iGEM) Team’s research on cervical cancer is helping to develop low-cost testing for people in developing countries. 

At Maryland Engineering, student greatness abounds. Academics, researchers, leaders of industry and government, and employers alike partner with the Clark School because our students are among the country’s most innovative and industrious, and they have a deep-rooted belief in engineering as a catalyst for improving our quality of life. 

To empower that kind of impact, we offer our students experiences to hone and commercialize their ideas, and advance their careers. We have launched new activities such as AI4All, for example: courses enabling undergraduates to gain more exposure in the fundamentals and applications of Artificial Intelligence in engineering, leading to a minor in AI.

We also provide regular and meaningful chances for students to interact with industry professionals. On May 1, 2024, we will expand that tradition with our first annual Capstone Design Expo.

At our Expo, students from Maryland Engineering’s civil and environmental, aerospace, mechanical, and bioengineering programs will showcase solutions to some of society’s most pressing challenges.Their solutions will be judged by experts in their respective fields with winners receiving cash prizes. We plan to expand the Expo college-wide in 2025. We appreciate the Whiting-Turner Contracting Company’s sponsorship of our event and support for our students.

We hope you will join us in College Park on May 1. You can meet Clark School students, faculty, and staff; recruit new employees from among our talented students; and see great ideas transformed into reality. As you will see, when the world looks for solutions, it goes to Maryland Engineering.
