Engineering Education in Maine

There are three schools in Maine with engineering programs that are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET.) These programs, which can lead to engineering licensure are the University of Maine, Maine Maritime and the University of Southern Maine. Because not all programs at the University of Southern Maine are accredited, it is recommended you check with the specific program you are interested in to guarantee you can be eligible for licensure upon completion. All three offer Bachelor degrees, only one offers a Master’s or PhD program. These programs do offer plans in many specialties like chemical, mechanical, electrical, civil, environmental, bioengineering etc.

There are also a number of engineering programs in Maine that are viable options for you to consider, but completion of them alone will not make you eligible to become a licensed Professional Engineer.

The Maine Society of Professional Engineers and Maine State Chamber of Commerce offer scholarships for engineering candidates. Each school will also advise students about financial aid and scholarships offered through the schools.
