U.S. News cites Merrimack’s engineering department as one of the top 100 undergraduate programs

Engineer/ Author Henry Petroski Speaks at College Writers House

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.

Dean’s Corner


Stephanie Lapierre recently received the first Science & Engineering Dean’s Grant to partially fund her summer internship at Pennington Biomedical Research Center.  When Stephanie was asked what she was most excited for she replied, “I have and advisor named Dr. Marc Hamilton, and he is an internationally renowned expert in physical activity. He is just starting some new research and says that I will be at the forefront of this research. I’m really excited to get out there and get involved.”
