Advice to Incoming Students:
At a big school like Maryland, you're guaranteed to fit in. Make friends in class and work together outside of class—that way you can learn faster and have more time for leisure activities.
talks about ECE @ Maryland:
"Growing up I thought I wanted to be an architect, since I liked drawing buildings and creating them with Legos, but I later decided on engineering.
I was first attracted to Maryland's ECE department because of the multitude of research possibilities.
As a student, I developed an early interest in renewable fuel sources, specifically in the technology research and development of the "Hydrogen Economy," as well as related public policy. My strong interest in this topic came from a few government and political courses that I took, in addition to my engineering studies.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoyed playing club lacrosse, lifting weights, and weekend barbeques. I also enjoyed my experience studying abroad in Germany.
Overall, the ECE is department is very diverse—from fellow students to faculty. New students should take advantage of the many possibilities that await them here at Maryland."
