Make a difference
MET graduates help us conserve energy at Efficiency Maine, while keeping our feet comfortable making New Balance Shoes. At iRobot Corp they keep our soldiers safe by finding roadside bombs using robots. They design efficient building heating and piping systems at Woodard & Curran. MET graduates support national defense building and repairing naval vessels at Bath Iron Works and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, supply us with Chinette paper plates produced at Huhtamaki Co., provide electrical power from turbines built at General Electric Power Systems, and keep us on the move manufacturing jet engines at Pratt & Whitney. About 70% of our graduates work in Maine.
