The University of Maine and Bowdoin College are teaming up to turn out engineers.
Governor Baldacci announced a partnership between the two school that will create a five-year program that will give graduates two degrees.
Students will study three years at Bowdoin followed by two at UMaine’s school of engineering, and will receive degrees from both schools.
Bowdoin has similar ":three-two": engineering partnerships with three other schools: Cal Tech, Columbia and Dartmouth.
The schools hope to start enrolling students in the program starting in the fall of next year.
