The engineering field is constantly evolving, and the demand for skilled engineers who can design and implement advanced technologies is only increasing. One of the newest and most exciting undergraduate engineering programs today is Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering (CPSE). This cutting-edge program is now offered by the University of Maryland, College Park, A. James Clark School of Engineering, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) Rockville campus.

The CPSE program at USG provides students with a comprehensive and interdisciplinary education that includes integrating physical systems with advanced computing, networking, and communication technologies. The curriculum taught in this program better prepares students for careers in emerging sectors and future technologies such as autonomous vehicles, electrical smart-grid development and management, and industrial IoT systems.  The program is unique because it provides opportunities for Montgomery County residents to remain in-county while earning an in-demand engineering degree from the University of Maryland, College Park.

The program has a two-year degree plan designed to provide students with rigorous training in hardware and software which also includes hands-on experience in areas such as advanced FPGA system design, embedded systems, computer vision, and microelectronics and sensors.  Students are exposed to techniques and tools of the practice and become proficient in Java, C/C++, Python, Verilog coding, and other hardware descriptive languages.

In addition to its rigorous curriculum, the CPSE program also offers students a wide range of opportunities for hands-on experience, including access to state-of-the-art labs and facilities, internships, and other opportunities for real-world experience. The program also boasts highly qualified and experienced Clark School of Engineering faculty committed to providing students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in cyber-physical systems and other engineering fields.

The UMD Cyber-Physical System Engineering program at USG is an exciting new undergraduate engineering program offered by the University of Maryland, College Park, A. James Clark School of Engineering, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Its focus on the intersection of hardware and software and its specializations in programming, networks, cybersecurity, and machine learning, make it an excellent choice for students interested in pursuing a career in a rapidly growing engineering field.

This program is a great option for Montgomery College graduates looking to transfer but if you or someone you know is interested, whether they’re looking for a job in industry or to further their education, the CPSE program provides the knowledge and skills they’ll need to succeed.
