WaterShed is the result of collaborative efforts involving over 200 students from diverse disciplines across the University of Maryland campus, including architecture, engineering, environmental science and technology, plant sciences, landscape architecture, and numerous others. This interactive program provides students with an understanding of the process by which architects, engineers, and other allied professionals engage one another to make a design a constructed reality. This innovative and challenging educational model is guided by a team of faculty members and mentors from the building industries.
