HOW TO SIGN UP: The following information is needed for off-campus students. ONLINE Engineering Courses are only for off-campus, practicing engineers – not for  regular UMaine on-campus undergraduates and graduate students. Make sure you indicate MATEC-Brunswick on the location of the online courses for proper sign up.

Permission: Students should contact Dean, Dana Humphrey for permission to register for online courses.

Register for Online Classes: Please contact the Continuing Education office at 207-581-3143 for an appointment or to ask questions about your academic plan.  The CED office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

NON-DEGREE STUDENTS: Students who ARE NOT admitted to our graduate school should register as non-degree students. Go online for more information on ways to register, including online registration:

ADMITTED STUDENTS: Students who ARE admitted to our graduate school will have been issued a Maine Street ID/password and should register online through Maine Street after consulting with their graduate advisor.  Apply to graduate school:

DELIVERY TECHNOLOGY:  Adobe Connect Pro.  This allows the course to be received on any computer with a high speed internet connection.  Students can text message instructor during class, ask questions, and if student’s computer has a camera, the instructor will be able to see them.  No software is needed for the receiving computer – it is all web based.  Although this is a synchronous course and students are expected to attend during the class time, the lectures will be recorded so that students can watch them at a later time.  Adobe Connect is used unless noted for each course.

Get PDHs by taking engineering courses from UMaine Engineering. One credit hour counts for 45 PDHs. For more information, consult the Maine Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers online.
