Mercer Engineering Research Center (MERC)

Mercer Engineering Research CenterAs the non-profit research and applied engineering arm of the University, the Mercer Engineering Research Center (MERC) provides objective and facts-based research services to government agencies, the Department of Defense, and a multitude of commercial entities.

Established in 1987 in Warner Robins, MERC employs more than 160 engineers, scientists, professors and support staff, some of whom were in Mercer’s first School of Engineering graduating class. Current engineering students are also employed by the Center. They gain substantial experience and knowledge working alongside expert engineers solving real-world problems. Also, the chance to “sample” a number of disciplines can help direct an undecided student to the right career path.
