Tim’s Story

photo of Tim Lydon surveying“As a professional in the surveying and engineering fields, I had leveled off in my development; I didn’t finish my degree nor did I have the education requirements to seek licensure as a PE or PLS. Coming from Massachusetts, I needed a program that would allow me to take surveying classes that fulfilled the requirements to sit for the FS and ultimately the PS tests. The online BS in SVT at UMaine allows me to do just that by taking classes part-time and doing homework during my nights and weekends. The classes are challenging, and informative, and the entire staff has been super helpful as I have a full-time job and just welcomed a baby girl to my family. I look forward to receiving my BS in SVT and becoming licensed in the near future thanks to the administration and staff at UMaine.”
