With an annual research portfolio of about $75 million, we are rapidly growing successful partnerships with federal and state agencies, foundations and the private sector, to create a space where our students, faculty, and alumni can make a difference through their work.

UMBC faculty have received prestigious honors, including Fulbright and Guggenheim fellowship, almost 30 NSF Career Awards, Presidential Early Career Awards in Science and Engineering (PECASE), HHMI Investigator awards and NASA’s 2012 Distinguished Public Service Medal.
