This two-year, nonresidential program is designed for the student who has an interest in engineering but would benefit from smaller classes and an integrated approach to learning math, science and engineering. Math and science will be taught in the context of engineering so that students can successfully apply this knowledge to solve engineering problems. The curriculum introduces students to all engineering disciplines, so students will be able to work with a wide range of professionals no matter their engineering specialty. The program is specifically designed for students who want to be civil, computer, electrical, or mechanical engineers.
Live, in-person courses are taught by professors recognized nationally for their expertise. The program offers a world-class education close to home, at the newly opened Brunswick Landing (formerly known as the Brunswick Naval Station).
After completing two years of coursework in Brunswick, students are automatically enrolled to complete the final two years of a B.S. engineering degree in civil, mechanical, electrical or computer
engineering on the Orono campus, or they can transfer to the University of Southern Maine. Scholarships are available.
The College of Engineering at the University of Maine is the sole institution in Maine to offer 11 accredited engineering and engineering technology majors and full M.S. and Ph.D. programs – engineering excellence since 1865.
