School of Science & Engineering
The world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) has never been more important than it is now, in our time of abundant discovery, controversial experimentation, and the rapid-fire development of new technologies.
Our goal is to integrate practical experience with interdisciplinary study and the acquisition of academic knowledge. This ensures that our graduates have every opportunity to become effective, compelling leaders in their fields—able to address change as it happens in technology and society.
The School of Science and Engineering encompasses nine academic departments and offers over a dozen undergraduate majors and six masters degrees. We are vibrant and growing, with a history of excellence in scholarship and practical applications.
Health Sciences, including Exercise and Sport Science and Nutrition; Physical and Natural Sciences, including joint Math and Economics programs; and strong Engineering and Computer Science Programs give students are variety of topics to explore and opportunities to build career skills.
Student Research Spotlight
Biology Department assistant professor Charlotte Berkes recently appeared before the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy to report on the research she conducted with assistant professor of chemistry Jimmy Franco and Merrimack students that shows the cancer treatment drug Sorafenib also inhibits growth of Histoplasma capsulatum.
The Biology Department made a change this semester to get more students hands-on research experience starting at the beginnings of their academic careers. The department is working with the National Science Foundation’s Vision and Change Program to incorporate independent biology research at the undergraduate level.
The O’Brien Center for Student Success is developing a job recruiting relationship with the construction firm PROCON which is building Merrimack’s North Residential Village. Sam Colangelo ’15, civil engineering graduate, is PROCON’s first hire from Merrimack.
Merrimack Proud with Patriot Pride:
Throughout Sean Jordan’s time at Merrimack, he participated in many clinical internship opportunities, working with Merrimack athletic teams and local high schools.
