Civil & Mechanical Engineering
We prepare exceptional engineers!
We are very excited to announce our new Mechanical Engineering Program within our newly named Civil and Mechanical Engineering Department!
Welcome to Civil and Mechanical Engineering at Merrimack College where educating tomorrow’s engineering leaders is our prime objective. We are very proud of our department’s contributions to civil engineering practice, knowledge and innovation, and look forward to continuing that tradition in both civil and mechanical engineering.
Merrimack provides a unique engineering experience. Our ABET accredited curriculum includes extensive general education requirements along with a rigorous and well-respected civil engineering curriculum. Our new mechanical engineering curriculum has been designed using that model and, we expect, will be accredited in its time.
We provide small average class sizes, faculty-taught lectures and laboratories, a strong co-op program and opportunities to minor in Business or Math and a nurturing atmosphere that fosters student success. The Civil Engineering program enrolled 90 majors in Fall 2012 and graduated 19 in that same year.
Please explore our web site further and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We encourage you to come and see for yourself the exciting educational opportunities Merrimack College has to offer.

Merrimack College civil engineering assistant professor Jim Kaklamanos is a traveling man this summer, first journeying to Utah for coursework on pile driving for new buildings, and next he’s off to New Zealand for research.
Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance Commissioner Jeff McCue was a lacrosse-playing student at Merrimack College before he started on a career in civil service. Then he hit it big in the lottery about four years ago and surrendered his job as vice chancellor of human resources for UMass Boston to relax and enjoy the good life. Even endless matches of golf can get tedious, though, so he accepted Gov. Charlie Baker’s offer to lead the agency that oversees food stamps and welfare.
Merrimack College’s entries in the sixth annual NASA Robotic Mining Competition and the 2015 National Student Steel Bridge Competition saw exciting results while going head-to-head with much larger schools.
