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 increases workforce readiness by creating educational degree programs in high-impact fields such as neuroscience, virtual and augmented reality, biomedical devices, data analytics, and cybersecurity.

New developments in FY19:

The Colleges of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences (CMNS) will launch a new, undergraduate Neuroscience major at UMCP in 2020, to train students interested in health care, allied health careers, biomedical industries, and clinical psychology. This will be the first intra-college major offered at UMCP.

A new bachelor of science and bachelor of arts degree in immersive media design offered by UMCP’s Colleges of Arts and Humanities and CMNS will launch in 2021. A collaboration between STEM fields and the arts and humanities, the degree prepares students to be leaders in production of augmented reality, virtual reality, and immersive media design disciplines.
