Maine Association of Engineers, Inc.

Since 1911













What is MAE?

The Maine Association of Engineers is the oldest of all the engineering societies in the state. The Association is quite unique in its scope. It is made up of approximately 300 members who are associated in a wide cross-section of the engineering profession.

The association was organized in 1911 as the Maine Society of Civil Engineers, but despite the original name, the MSCE accommodated members from all engineering professions. Engineers, architects, surveyors, contractors and anybody associated with the many fields of engineering were eligible for membership in the organization. The name of the MSCE was changed to the Maine Association of Engineers  in 1920. The current name better reflects the wide diversity of membership.

Our Focus

As a member of the MAE, you will have the opportunity to attend field trips to various places of engineering interest, and to participate in hands-on or online seminars/courses. We normally conduct organization meetings, held four to five times per year at various locations throughout the state. A typical meeting involves a mid-day luncheon, an after lunch speaker, and an afternoon tour of a functional facility or an engineering construction project. These statewide meetings are held to accommodate those members who wish to familiarize themselves with a particular project or facility and learn more about theirs or another field of engineering. MAE meetings often qualify attendees to receive PDH (Professional Development Hours) credits, required in most states for annual engineering registration renewal.

The MAE meetings are a great place to meet and learn from other engineers. Considering the total years of experience within the MAE membership, there are many opportunities to broaden one's depth of understanding of other engineering professions and timely subject matters. Students are also encouraged to join, as they will learn about exciting projects that are happening in the various and related industry fields.
