Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The Whiting School, committed to quality education in the setting of a premier research university, offers four-year undergraduate programs in nine departments, a combined bachelors/master's program, and graduate programs leading to the masters and Ph.D. The part-time master's degree programs in engineering and applied science are among the largest in the country. The School maintains close ties with the Schools of Arts & Sciences and Medicine, the Applied Physics Laboratory, as well as industry and community partners in the Baltimore-Washington area. The undergraduate student body ranks among the top nationally. The student/faculty ratio is about 10:1; classes are small with significant opportunity for individual faculty/student interaction, particularly independent study and research projects.
