Engineers solve the most pressing problems of our time — and the University of Maine has a longstanding tradition of excellence in engineering. At UMaine, you’ll work with and learn from nationally and internationally recognized innovators in their fields. You’ll also be able to take advantage of our programs in leadership and management and state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities. Undergraduates have the opportunity to do meaningful research alongside faculty, and professors, not graduate students, teach classes. We have a high placement rate in top graduate programs.
