Dean's Welcome

Mercer engineering graduates work in a wide variety of Dr. Laura Lackeydisciplines and industries located throughout the United States and the world. Many of our graduates go on to professional and graduate schools. They are well known for their exceptional ability to communicate clearly with others, their ability to work through difficult problems, and their ability to solve problems and design products and processes creatively.  Flexibility is a word often used by employers to describe our graduates.

The Mercer University School of Engineering prepares students to serve the rapidly changing demands of a new century. Our academic programs provide breadth and depth so that graduates are equipped to deal with technical topics and with the challenges of professional practice in the future. Our professors bring insight and wisdom from many different perspectives – practical experience, research, and the roles of teachers and parents. We provide opportunities for practical work experience, international study, community engagement and research linked to service.
