"Great opportunity to take classes that are tailored to your interests. Opens your mind to different cultures and lifestyles. Although, I don't remember everything I learned in my classes, it helps train you to think about things differently which is extremely useful in the workforce."

"U Maine is a great school to get a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I first got a associates degree in Mechanical Engineering then went on to get a BSME. U Maine at Orono is a very good school. Cold in the winter, but great in the fall and spring. The professors are excellent and well versed about what is needed in real world engineering. The Mechanical Engineering College is one of the best in New England. For a very good university it was moderately priced. It certainly helped me in my career and I am very appreciative of the education I received."

"The Mechanical Engineering Technology was a great program for those who wanted to learn basic engineering principles and be able to apply them. Lots of hands on in Engineering Experimentation and other lab type courses. Knowledgeable Professors that were very approachable and easy to communicate with. I recommend this program for both techies and Bachelor candidates since most of the hours transferred. Very nice campus and a highly rate engineering school."

"This is my second degree from the University of Maine at Orono. As a nontraditional student I decided to make this an affordable experience as possible. UMO was excellent in helping me do that. I was able to attend a closer community college and take nearly all the electives that I was missing while still being considered a full time UMO student (active away status). Please note, that like any undergraduate degree you must take a certain number of electives that don't deal with your major, but UMO offers a wide assortment to choose from. I was able to take an online Asian Cinema course that was my favorite elective over my 8 years at UMO. My advisors Raymond Hintz and Carlton Brown were extremely encouraging, helpful, and knowledgeable. Furthermore, the department is excellent at providing links, and job postings for current (and graduating) students. I was amazed at the number of job listings for survey engineers in Maine alone (not to mention nationwide)."
