Welcome to the College of Engineering at the University of Maine where we are innovating our economic future. No matter your reason for exploring the site, you’ll find out about opportunities to make a difference and to change the world through the field of engineering.
The College of Engineering at the University of Maine
is the sole institution in Maine to offer 11 engineering and engineering technology majors and full M.S. and Ph.D. programs.
The College of Engineering is working for Maine to educate and train the next generation of engineers to meet the growing technological needs of our state, and to develop the innovations needed to power Maine’s economy.
The talent of our graduates and the innovations that result from our research are vital to growing Maine’s economy. The College of Engineering is helping to grow a new knowledge-based economy through research and development by generating new manufacturing and technology spin-off companies that are already impacting our economy.
70% of Maine’s exports rely on engineering. Maine-based engineering and architectural services employ more than 5,000 people, gross over $500 million in annual revenue, and generate $105,000 in economic activity per employee.
UMaine R&D innovation is hard at work for Maine and for the world, developing new sensors to detect chemicals, renewable energy sources to heat and power our homes, new fuels to run our vehicles, and new composites to protect U.S. soldiers out in the field.
The College of Engineering at the University of Maine is a very special place, where people really care about society and using their talents to make the world a better place. I am very proud and privileged to lead this incredible College. Please have a look at our website and learn about the exciting research that is going on at the College of Engineering.
