From water systems to transportation networks to energy grids, the foundational structures that are vital to civilization are rapidly aging—and failing. Talented engineers with strong technical capabilities and exceptional leadership skills are needed to develop solutions to these and the world’s other intractable problems.

At the University of Maryland, Terp engineers are at the forefront of developing integrated solutions for our species and planet. Stanley R. Zupnik Hall is symbolic of Maryland Engineering’s exciting potential to break the mold of traditional approaches to research: When the facility is completed in 2026, students, faculty, and staff across multiple engineering disciplines will come together with cross-campus institutes and external partners to take on society’s most pressing grand challenges.

The Fall/Winter 2023 issue of Engineering at Maryland magazine asks four of the faculty leaders who will innovate within the labs, classrooms, and collaborative spaces of Zupnik Hall to take us inside their processes, priorities, and plans for the future. Cozy up to the latest issue of Maryland Engineering’s biannual magazine and learn how these civic-minded thinkers are using their prowess to build a better world—for everyone.
