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 student engineers have advanced to the national finals of the Steel Bridge Competition.
There will seemingly be more bridges on the Merrimack College campus than the New York skyline as the school hosts the New England Regional Steel Bridge competition inside J. Thomas Lawler Arena on April 10 and 11.
The Science and Engineering Department is in the first year of a five-year $448,856 grant from the National Science Foundation to retain and graduate more computer science and engineering students at part of the national Graduate 10K+ initiative over the next decade.
