The University of Maryland's A. James Clark School of Engineering is one of the best and most comprehensive engineering programs in the country. Aside from the excellent academic and research programs, Maryland also offers students a welcoming and vibrant community. The close-knit collegiality among students and faculty proves the work hard, play hard theory. The noontime picnics and volleyball games, team-building competitions and the intense academic challenges combine to produce some of the highest academic achievers, most prestigious award winners and most successful graduates of the university.
You will love taking advantage of our location—a Metro ride away from sights, culture and nightlife of Washington, D.C. home of the new baseball team the Washington Nationals. You will also be half an hour down the road from Baltimore and Annapolis, where you can visit numerous seafood restaurants and try the state delicacy: Maryland crabs. Let the MARC drop you at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, or the Baltimore Ravens football stadium. Check out mega-concerts at the MCI Center, or blues and jazz music at the intimate Blues Alley in Georgetown or stand-up comedians at the D.C. Improv.
Consider the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian, the U.S. Capitol, the White House, the National Institutes of Health, the embassies, as your resources for information, internships, or just exploration. Galleries, theaters, festivals, events will vie for your interest and time.
Maryland is a state that offers every kind of natural beauty, from the Chesapeake Bay and ocean beaches to the mountains, lakes and rivers of its western counties. Sailing, thoroughbred racing, skiing, hiking and camping are a few of its features.
The city of College Park is a true college town, with dozens of eateries, shops, clubs, and diversions just for students. Neighboring towns offer multiplexes showing their latest movies, shopping malls for all your needs, a national park, a beautiful lake, and restaurants for when your parents come to town.
