Engineering - Student Success Stories
- Luke Saindon
Home-schooled until 7th grade, Luke Saindon learned his early lessons from his parents and the interactions of daily life in the Hancock County town of Deer Isle, Maine. When he graduated from public high school and enrolled at UMaine, Saindon chose
to major in mechanical engineering.
- Timothy McGrath
I chose UMaine because it’s one of the best schools in the country for mechanical engineering, and it’s still close enough to home to spend time with my family and friends from Bangor, Orono and Old Town.

- Peter Drown
Peter Drown had only been at UMaine for a short while when the recession hit. Rather than get discouraged, Drown, an Economics major from Villa Park, Ill., looked to the future.
- Travis Wallace
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.
- Jamie Reinhold
Why UMaine? I first fell in love with UMaine the summer after seventh grade. I came to a "Band Camp" (MSYM, Maine Summer Youth Music) for six years every summer and was introduced to the campus and faculty. UMaine just started to feel like home after that.
- Stephanie Yum
Why UMaine? A lot of reasons. It's like home. When I first came here I felt welcome and comfortable. It also offers a great engineering education. And then there's instate tuition. All around, it was the best choice for me.
