for Accounting, Engineering, Management, Computer Science, and Public Affairs master’s programs

The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Merrimack reflects the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of the practice of engineering.

The program emphasizes a holistic, systems view of the various disciplines.  At its core, the curriculum provides formal instruction int he systems paradigm and in a set of mathematical tools appropriate to a particular focus area of interest and that will be used in subsequent courses. 

Why a master’s in Mechanical Engineering?
Solving real-life problems that benefit society - the advanced study of mechanical engineering is ideal for individuals who would like to work with other professionals on challenging problems requiring the integration of science, engineering, and socio-economic knowledge.  Merrimack’s curriculum covers a broad scope of topics to prepare you to deal with the “big picture.”  You will learn to work and think analytically and will be given the tools to oversee complicated and interdisciplinary projects.

Where will I work after graduation?
From conception and design to production and marketing, almost everything sold on the market today involves mechanical engineering. Mechanical engineering is a highly versatile degree allowing graduates to work int he following fields:

  • robotics & prosthetics
  • superconductivity
  • centrifuges
  • rock propulsion systems
  • air conditioning

Companies who employ mechanical engineers include: General Electric, Boston Scientific, General Motors, Ford, Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, IBM, and Lockheed Martin.
