The College’s net external research expenditures in FY 2016 were $10 million, with funding from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, as well as from business and industry.
At the center of COEIT’s focus, however, are its students, who are proud to be a part of UMBC’s inclusive and high-achieving community. COEIT faculty are engaged teachers as well as talented researchers and are deeply committed to their students’ success. One of the key accomplishments under the College’s current strategic plan has been the creation of the UMBC Grand Challenge Scholars program, which brings together students across disciplines to address selected challenges in a formal, personalized manner.
