University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC)

Founded: Spring 2000
Installed: June 4, 2005UMBC


The group at UMBC got started in the Spring of 2000. Growth was slow at first but after a few years the UMBC began to grow rapidly. Part of the reason behind the success of the group was the use of a program called Design Advantage, which is based on Triangle Fraternity’s Leadership Advantage but includes a real life design project that the participants develop. Much interaction is required with older students, faculty and even engineers from industry.
