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