The University of Maine’s College of Engineering is reaching out to Maine high schools this fall to offer them and their students information about the engineering field and related opportunities.
The College is inviting school groups to tour the University of Maine campus in Orono to allow high school students to speak with students enrolled in the College of Engineering, visit engineering classes and see the engineering facilities.
Representatives from the College of Engineering are also offering to visit Maine high schools to speak with juniors and seniors about educational opportunities and scholarships available through the College.
The College of Engineering has a record enrollment this fall, but Maine still ranks 49th per capita in the United States when it comes to graduating engineers.
Teachers and administrators can visit the UMaine College of Engineering website and complete the online form indicating interest in campus tours and school visits.
