School of Engineering
Welcome to Mercer University’s School of Engineering
At Mercer’s School of Engineering, our commitment to pushing the world forward goes beyond the physical—to the emotional—to the issues, problems and solutions that move us the most. We take a faculty member’s mission and make it into a prosthetic prototype that moves communities forward. When a school for the blind puts out a seemingly impossible ask, we turn high school memories into a sensory experience. We combine academic rigor and experiential learning with empathy and compassion—to help some of the best engineers in the country land some of the best jobs on the planet. At Mercer, we are moved to do more.
Engineering Scholarship Challenge
High school seniors and transfer students interested in pursuing a major in Mercer’s School of Engineering are invited to join us on campus for the annual Engineering Scholarship Challenge on Saturday, November 14. Meet School of Engineering faculty, see our laboratories and classrooms, talk with current students, and tour Mercer’s historic Macon campus. Students in attendance will have the opportunity to earn scholarships by demonstrating their math and verbal skills through completion of a standardized test.
The School of Engineering offers 9 undergraduate specialties and 13 graduate specialties that prepare students to serve rapidly changing industry demands and anticipate solutions to future challenges.
One thing I love about Mercer Engineering is that our engineers are cross-trained in multiple specialties. I know that with a Mercer Engineering degree, I will be able to find a job in a wide array of disciplines.

Leading the Nation
No. 1 in Engineering Goldwaters
Mercer University leads all U.S. higher education institutions in the number of engineering students who received this year’s Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship with 3 winners of the nation’s most prestigious scholarship for undergraduates in science, mathematics, and engineering.
Research and Innovation
At Mercer, we believe that theory and practice go hand-in-hand. We ask “how can this work better” and then search for answers together. We find what touches our hearts and minds, and then, collectively, we make it with our hands.
Meet the Faculty
Our faculty members bring not only theoretical knowledge to the classroom, but also years of professional experience in their specialized fields. Professors offer a supportive environment in which students can learn and grow as engineers, researchers, and future industry leaders.
