Our research ecosystem includes many campus-based research centers and institutes as well as several UMBC research centers located at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; and research and academic space in Shady Grove, Columbia, and in downtown Baltimore. We are conducting research across and beyond the planet, with a satellite designed and operated by UMBC now in orbit.
