The School of Science and Engineering is a dynamic center of engaged learning.  We offer more than a dozen undergraduate majors that range from graduate school preparation to nationally accredited professional programs, all strengthened by the full integration of Merrimack’s liberal arts core.  Traditions of active research and experiential learning combined with unique direct access to faculty provide students with the tools to foster a lifetime of inquiry and investigation.
- Mary Noonan, M.S, Dean, School of Science and 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 Advising, Tutoring, and Mentoring (ATM) initiative is a program through iTEC that is available to students as an outlet to assist them in their coursework. Students are placed in cohorts led by a Peer Mentor. The cohorts are chosen based on major to help with advising and questions within the major. The peer mentors help foster a community among first year students and a sense of belonging with School of Science and Engineering. In addition to the cohort, the students enjoy free tutoring four nights per week and career or professional development events. To read the full ATM Program story, visit our News & Events page here.
