Power Engineering Operations
This non-seagoing major is concerned primarily with the operation and maintenance of industrial steam and gas turbine power plants and with related electrical systems. Your classroom studies are closely coordinated with practical experience in laboratories, such as a small-scale operating steam plant, power plan simulator, welding and testing lab, electrical power lab, and the 500-foot Training Ship State of Maine.
Power Engineering Operations students gain hands-on training in summer cooperative work experiences in power plants and large industrial settings nationwide. Along with work experience comes exposure to: current practices in your area of study, management organizations, diverse equipment and machinery, people and geographical locations.
Dynamic Career Options
Successful completion of the program leads to the Bachelor of Science degree and, after passing a State of Maine examination, a 4th-ClassEngineer License (Stationary Plant).
Participation in the Regiment is optional when enrolled in this program.
