Maine Engineering Workforce Summit

Maine faces a looming shortage of engineers.  Given how important engineers are to Maine's economy, this Summit presented a call for action to increase the number of engineering graduates by expanding and upgrading our engineering teaching facilities in Maine.  

On Thursday, Sept. 29th at the Maine Engineering Workforce Summit, top experts on the economy, employment, education, and engineering in the State of Maine discussed where we are now and action steps to meet this challenge in the future. Over 140 people attended and this event succeeded in laying the ground work for supporting a great investment in educational engineering facilities at UMaine.
