College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College offers a wide range of four year undergraduate programs in Engineering (Bioengineering, Chemical, Civil and Environmental, Computer, Electrical, Engineering Physics, and Mechanical). Students can select a department on entry or may remain as "undeclared" for up to two years. There are many courses common to all majors in the first year to allow easy transfer between programs. Most programs have a co-op option. All undergraduate engineering courses and laboratories are taught by faculty members.All programs have a design project. All students are encouraged to take the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam. There are opportunities for work with faculty throughout the student's stay.

The college also offers minors in: Biomedical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Construction Management Technology, Electrical Engineering, Electrical Engineering Technology, Engineering Entrepreneurial, Engineering Leadership and Management, Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Military Science and Leadership, Naval Science, Power, Process Engineering, Renewable Energy Engineering, Robotics, Survey Engineering Technology.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Students apply through the UMaine Graduate School for admission to engineering programs. A non-refundable application fee of $65 must accompany an application. Minimum GPA 3.0 out of 4.0 is required and students need to have official transcripts from all institutions attended sent to the Graduate School.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Each engineering department reviews all applications for its programs. All engineering programs require the GRE Aptitude tests and applicants must check with the appropriate department to determine if a GRE Subject Test is also required. An undergraduate degree in engineering is preferred, although some programs admit students with a non-engineering degree, if background deficiencies are addressed.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

In addition to the above criteria, international students must also demonstrate English proficiency by passing the with a score of 550 or above or 213 or higher on the CBT. Proof of financial support is necessary and health insurance is required.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
