Graduate students at the University of Maryland—College Park’s A. James Clark School of Engineering can design and test space exploration robotics in zero gravity at the school’s Neutral Buoyancy Research Facility, which houses a neutral buoyancy tank—the only one on a college campus. The facility is one of four on-campus research labs associated with the Space Systems Laboratory, and one of more than 30 research centers and institutes at the Clark School.

Full-time master’s students at Clark can choose from 16 degree areas, including engineering standards such as electrical or aerospace engineering, as well as less-common offerings such as fire protection or nuclear engineering. The school also offers the two part-time degree options—a master’s of science in telecommunications and a professional master of engineering degree—and a graduate certificate in engineering.

Outside of the classroom and the research labs, graduate students can gain hands-on experience via internships and co-op employment opportunities. They can also use their engineering expertise to make an impact in developing countries via the school’s Engineers Without Borders group.

Notable alumni from University of Maryland—College Park’s Clark School of Engineering include Jeong Kim, president of Bell Labs; and Michael Griffin, former head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
