UMBC - Southwest

UMBC - Southwest (PDF) is a focal point for research driven, technology-led economic development and entrepreneurship, especially in cybersecurity and alternative energy.


Its prime location on I-95 in the heart of the Baltimore-Washington Corridor supports a diverse technology and industrial business community. Just six miles from BWI Marshall International Airport and 20 miles from the Washington, D.C. beltway, the business community is near federal laboratories, NSA, Fort Meade, U.S. Cyber Command, University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) and the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) Catonsville Campus.

The technology and research park, bwtech@UMBC, focuses on cybersecurity, life sciences and incubators that help develop early stage companies. Nearby Halethorpe-Arbutus is a logistics and distribution hub with direct access to I-95, I-695, I-895 and I-295.
