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.
Alumni Success Stories
Since 2007, University of Maine engineering alumna Kate (Stephens) Beaumont has worked as a structural engineer at one of Maine’s largest employers, Bath Iron Works, owned by General Dynamics. Beaumont, who received a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 2005 and completed her master’s in mechanical engineering this past summer, works in BIW’s Dynamic Analysis Group, where she engineers equipment foundations to survive shock loads.
Student Success Stories
When Travis Wallace first heard about the potential of thermoelectric power generation — which relates to the production of electric power from waste heat — the then-Maine Maritime Academy undergraduate could easily picture the technology’s possibilities for the maritime industry.
