Who We Are
What We Think
The New Media Program at the University of Maine offered me … a collaborative, project-driven environment that I had never experienced before. Through New Media I have learned to apply cutting-edge technical and creative skills to solve real problems and, more importantly, been exposed to a variety of ideas and experiences that apply directly to companies and organizations around the world.
We were able to see how far we could take what we learned in New Media. Classes that we took, like Arduino classes, we could see it applied in real world applications.
