Graduate education is one of the UMaine Composites Center educational highlights. Nearly 125 graduate students have been affiliated with the UMaine Composites Center since its opening in 2000. While most graduate students have been in civil engineering, forest resources or wood science, most recently, several have majored in a variety of programs such as economics, international trade and commerce, and business.

Graduate students gain hands-on experience and professional training in research ethics, industrial safety, supervision and leadership, equipment operation, and ISO 17025 quality management. Graduate students are expected to become full research partners and are encouraged to develop professionally not only in the classroom but also through writing, conference presentations, networking with academic and industrial colleagues, and production of intellectual property.
