Dual Degree Program in Engineering
Increasingly, today's engineer needs to be a good communicator, understand how engineering impacts society, and have a broader educational background as they aspire to higher level promotion opportunities.
Combining Engineering and Liberal Arts programs is becoming more popular as engineers recognize the need for greater exposure to the humanities along with their technical skills, and also as engineers are called upon to work in community, corporate, legal, international and other diversified settings.
To meet the needs of today's engineer, the University of Maine at Farmington (UMF) has partnered with the University of Maine (in Orono) to offer an innovative new dual degree program in Liberal Arts and Engineering.
The new program is tailored for those interested in obtaining a degree in Engineering, but who want a Liberal Arts college experience at a smaller campus as part of their education.
As Maine's public liberal arts college, the University of Maine at Farmington is uniquely qualified to offer the kind of educational experience that develops critical thinking and leadership development as it prepares students for successful professional lives in a complex and changing world.

Students enroll in the joint program by first applying to UMF, where they spend their first 3 years pursuing their University of Maine at Farmington B.A. degree, completing general education requirements and engineering pre-requisites in math and science.
