Success in Engineering
Merrimack equips you with the skills and education to be successful in engineering.
Program Educational Objectives
- Adaptability to changing employer needs and technology trends
- Diagnosing and solving problems
- A system-level understanding of their engineering contributions. Our graduates understand that their work influences and is influenced by engineering throughout the system.
- An understanding of the program management implications of their work. Our graduates understand the influence their decisions have on issues such as project scheduling, cost and quality.
- Designing or testing devices and or systems
- Serving on teams as a contributing member
- Practice electrical engineering in application areas including but not limited to the following:
- Analog, digital and wireless circuit design, test and manufacture
- Integrated circuit design, layout, and fabrication
- Telecommunications and packet technology
- Electrical power generation, distribution, and quality
- Application of renewable energy, energy conversion and energy efficiency
- Embedded controller and high-level programming and design
- Engage in regular upgrading of their knowledge and skill set as part of ensuring both their personal success and the success of their employer. Many pursue graduate work, continuing education, or professional trainings.
Consistent with the program’s objectives, students will have:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
