The community I immediately found and experienced within FPE has made a significant difference in my academics and in my life.
My internship at SmithGroup... was eye opening!
I immediately felt at home on the University of Maryland campus.
I learned just how fortunate I am to live in a state with such a reputable and esteemed university.
My favorite class was Human Behavior in Fire, which I took abroad at Lund University in Sweden.
The staff and faculty are amazing, and the department feels like a family.
If you're willing to put yourself out there, and push hard, you will be successful.
Having practical experience has given me more confidence in my academic abilities.
I'm incredibly grateful to have such amazing opportunities in my career due to the dedication of FPE faculty and staff.
After graduation, I intend to gain my professional engineers license and work in consulting for life safety analysis.
