Money interviews Humphrey about earning engineering degree online

Money interviewed Dana Humphrey, dean of the University of Maine College Engineering, for an article titled “Can You Actually Earn an Engineering Degree Online? How It Works and What It Costs.” Humphrey stressed the importance of experiential learning, even when obtaining a degree online. UMaine’s online surveying engineering technology degree program requires students to find a local surveyor to supervise their lab projects and mentor them. “A critical part of being an engineer is that experience of taking something and putting it together,” Humprey said. “That doesn’t come from watching somebody on a video, that comes from actually having something directly in front of you.”
