Readiness for Success in Engineering
Engineering is a dynamic field that plays a crucial role in advancing our society’s technological frontiers. At Merrimack College, our program is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge required for a successful career in this transformative domain.
Why Study Engineering at Merrimack?
Pursuing an engineering degree is not just about acquiring technical knowledge; it’s about understanding how to leverage this knowledge for societal benefit. While our program is thorough to ensure you’re well-prepared for the challenges of the profession, you’ll find ample support and resources at every step of your journey.
Understanding the Curriculum
Most of our students embark on a 4-year program, but we recognize and celebrate the diversity of our learners. Some might choose to extend their studies over 4.5 or 5 years, while others, with prior credits, might graduate earlier. Remember, it’s about your individual journey, and there’s no one-size-fits-all.
If you’re beginning with Pre-Calculus or MTH 1000, you might opt for summer classes to align with the standard timeline. However, this is just one of many paths to success.
Courses like Calculus I, Physics I, Mechanics I, and Digital Fundamentals are foundational to our engineering program. Excelling in these provides a strong base for future studies, but it’s essential to remember that everyone’s learning journey is unique.
