BUILT FOR BREAKTHROUGHS

Inside SliceMontgomery County, MD has a long history of investing strongly in education. The Universities at Shady Grove (USG)—which offers approximately 80 undergraduate and graduate programs from nine different state universities on one convenient campus—is a prime example of that investment. USG is committed to creating an environment that promotes the education of students; the growth and long-term success of companies; and the economic prosperity of the residents and businesses of the region.

With the addition of the Biomedical Sciences and Engineering (BSE) Education Facility, opening fall 2019, USG will be able to take that commitment to a new level—setting a new standard in high-quality, higher education that directly meets the region’s economic and workforce development needs.

BUILDING A SKILLED WORKFORCESTEMM Data Graph 2

Within the next 25 years, one quarter of the nation’s job growth is projected to be in health, healthcare delivery, and the biosciences. Job opportunities in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medical (STEMM) fields in Maryland are on pace with that projected growth, but the demand for skilled employees far outpaces the supply. Montgomery County is often described as “the economic engine” of Maryland. As such, now is the time to provide students with access to the degrees and careers that will directly power tomorrow’s workforce. USG’s Biomedical Sciences and Engineering (BSE) Education Facility is designed to be a pathway of innovation and opportunity for students in and around Montgomery County, MD.
