The UM Center for Economic and Entrepreneurship Development (UMCEED)

To create educational degree programs in high-impact fields to increase workforce readiness. 

Established by law in 2016, UMCEED creates educational degree programs in high-impact fields such as neuroscience, virtual and augmented reality, biomedical devices, data analytics, and cybersecurity to increase workforce readiness.

In its first year, UMCEED funds supported three new undergraduate majors in information sciences, neuroscience, and immersive media, expanded capabilities in UMCP’s Department of Computer Science, and supported a joint program between UMB and UMCP through the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices.

A major new initiative in brain and behavior is envisioned with UMB and UMCP engaged in hiring new leadership and developing new infrastructure to investigate recovery from brain trauma.
