First Engineering Program Joins USG in Fall 2020. By: Kathryn Weiland

The University of Maryland, College Park is excited to bring the first engineering program to the Universities at Shady Grove beginning in Fall 2020. The Bachelor of Science in Embedded Systems and Internet of Things (ESIOT), offered through the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the A. James Clark School of Engineering, is a groundbreaking new program and the first of its kind in the state of Maryland.

As our world moves rapidly in the direction of widespread interconnected devices, it is essential that we have engineers who are trained in the growing field of embedded systems. Not only will these engineers be able to design and implement these smart devices, but using the Internet of Things, they will be able to connect these devices through networking and cloud computing. This kind of expertise is necessary for the next generation of the workforce, and our degree program will ensure the development of these cutting-edge skills.

The video below was designed to further explain this growing field as well as summarize the curriculum of the ESIOT degree program. We are now accepting applications for the inaugural Fall 2020 cohort of students. To learn more about our exciting program, please visit or email
