Brain Power

The University of Maryland, College Park, Bowie State University, and Prince George’s Community College annually enroll more than 60,000 students, including 12,000 graduate students. They provide a ready supply of skilled workers to support the growing economies of the County and region. The institutions’ workforce development and cutting-edge academic, continuing education, and apprenticeship programs have played a critical role in fostering core competencies or “know how” in primary industry clusters, such as: 

  • Biosciences
  • Computer services
  • Development and engineering
  • Research
  • Software
