Abstract

"Newsworthy" piece about John Wright, the dean of the University of Southern Maine's School of Applied Science, Engineering and Technology (ASET), who is working to raise $1.2 million to help fund an $8 million expansion plan for ASET that will include new degrees, such as mechanical engineering and digital media, to complement existing programs in electrical engineering, computer science, and immunology. The plan also calls for a 20,000-square-foot addition to the school's existing building on the school's Gorham campus and for the creation of a new manufacturing assistance center to help companies adopt new technologies, retrain workers and design new, high-tech plants. Wright hopes to increase the number of engineering and technology graduates from about 65 today to 150 in 2010 to help prime the Maine economy.
