Electrical Engineering at Merrimack
Electrical Engineers or “EEs” are involved in the design, manufacture, and operation of everything electrical, from microprocessors and communications to electric power and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). EE opportunities range from building hardware such as radar equipment to interfacing between software and hardware using microprocessors. Virtually every major industry employs EEs.
At Merrimack College, we feature degrees accredited by ABET (Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology). Our classes are small, with faculty dedicated to teaching and mentoring which facilitates active learning in lectures and laboratory courses. Our curriculum specializes in electrical and computer engineering, mathematics and science. The Electrical Engineering program enrolled 50 majors in Fall 2012 and graduated 6 in that same year.
Over 90% of Merrimack EE students have work experience by the time they graduate. Co-op offers many opportunities for EEs, along with the increased likelihood of job offers upon graduation due to strong resumes reflecting work experience. Raytheon and National Grid are examples of locations where our cooperative education students work full time.
Part-Time Opportunities for B.S.E.E. and A.S.E.E. degrees
To accommodate students who work full time in industry, our department schedules EE lectures at 4:00 p.m. with laboratory sections at night.
