Maryland Applied Graduate Engineering Reaches Alumni Milestone
Maryland Applied Graduate Engineering (MAGE) at the A. James Clark School of Engineering has graduated more than 4,000 alumni to date, reaching a milestone of service to the engineering industry. This achievement reflects the increased global demand for advanced, applied graduate engineering education and the Clark School’s enduring reputation for quality.
“We are so proud to reach this milestone, especially now,” says George Syrmos, Assistant Dean for Continuing Education. “Our programs’ flexibility has allowed us to adapt to changing times, without compromise; our students graduate ready to serve as engineering leaders here in the Washington, D.C., area and around the world.”
Since its founding in 1994, MAGE, formerly the Office of Advanced Engineering Education, has served the needs of the professional engineering community through world-class education delivered on-campus, at remote sites, and online. Innovations in delivery have led to a growing and diverse domestic and international student body; with graduates hailing from 17 countries. With the addition of 91 new graduates in fall 2020, the number of MAGE alumni stands at 4,004—3,448 with Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) and 556 with Graduate Certificate in Engineering (GCEN) degrees.
MAGE offers graduate programs in 18 traditional and interdisciplinary engineering areas, including the niche Cybersecurity, Robotics, and Additive Manufacturing disciplines. Over the life of MAGE, the greatest number of M.Eng. and GCEN degrees were conferred in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Project Management, respectively. The most popular M.Eng. degree conferred to fall 2020 graduates was in Robotics; the most popular GCEN degree was a tie between Electronic Packaging and Software Engineering, revealing the importance of new disciplines to engineering professionals and the industry they serve.
