Engineers are changing the world all of the time! Engineers create innovative and practical solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges and they work with other smart, inspiring people to invent, design and build things that matter and make a difference.


Can you see yourself doing some of these jobs?

  • Protect the planet by developing state-of-the-art water systems
  • Design high-tech cell phones and mp3 players
  • Create cutting-edge animation for video games, TV & Movies
  • Develop life-saving medical technology to detect early  brain tumors
  • Build bomb-proof structures to protect soldiers in war zones
  • Invent a new sensor that can detect pollution in our drinking water

Sample Curriculum
Computer Needs

IMG_0806You will receive your individualized schedule once you are registered for classes. This will be done automatically through the College of Engineering once you enroll in the program and take your math placement test.

Math Placement Test.
  Take test by April 30, 2014.
Every incoming freshman student at UMaine needs to take the math placement test.  This test is administered electronically through Blackboard, and you will have access to it once you enroll.  This test is required so that the faculty can assess your mathematics readiness and, if necessary, recommend supplemental work before the start of classes so that you can work effectively at the BEP.   Rest assured that your acceptance to UMaine is NOT conditioned to any specific performance in the math placement test (again, you would have to do the exact same thing if you attended the Orono Campus).   We ask that you take this test before the end of April so that we can recommend appropriate measures if needed.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions! – I very much look forward to working with you this fall. Contact me to set up a tour or come to your school to let you know more about the Brunswick Engineering program and how we can help you reach your goals.
