Programs for Working Professionals
The Clark School of Engineering offers graduate programs designed specifically for the working professional. The full or part-time Master of Science in Telecommunications Program combines cutting-edge technical courses with management, regulatory and public policy instruction to provide students with all of the skills they need to advance in successful telecommunications careers.
Both the Professional Master of Engineering Program and the Graduate Certificate in Engineering Program are practice-oriented, part-time graduate programs designed to assist engineers in the development of their professional careers, as well as to provide the technical expertise needed in business, government, and industrial environments.
Fueled by nearly 200 world-class faculty members dedicated to scholarship and research, more than $125 million in research expenditures, and state-of-the-art labs in the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building, the Clark School offers students the chance to participate in graduate study in the following areas:
- Aerospace Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.)
- Bioengineering (M.S., Ph.D)
- Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.)
- Civil and Environmental Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.)
- Electrical and Computer Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.)
- Fire Protection Engineering (M.S.)
- Master's Program in Telecommunications (M.S.)
- Materials Science and Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.)
- Mechanical Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.)
- Nuclear Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.)
- Professional Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)
- Project Management (M.S., M.Eng, Ph.D.)
- Reliability Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.)
Systems Engineering (M.S.)
The critical issues facing the world today increasingly call for the expertise of engineers. The Master of Engineering & Public Policy program (MEPP) offered jointly by the Clark School and the School of Public Policy, creates leaders who understand the social context of their work, and policy analysts who have a real knowledge of engineering sciences.
In addition, students may participate in cross-disciplinary programs offered by the school's institutes and centers, ranging from nanotechnology to chaos theory to intelligent transportation and many others, and in long-established partnerships with industry and government labs and other schools.
Doctoral students should explore the Clark School’s Future Faculty Program, which trains students for teaching positions at leading engineering schools. The Clark School's graduate programs are ranked highly by U.S. News & World Report and other surveys.
Prospective students are encouraged to communicate with Clark School faculty to learn about programs and opportunities. Applications are made to the University of Maryland Graduate School, which provides information about requirements, applications materials, criteria, schedules, resources, finances and other topics.
