Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

All engineering students are required to complete a three-term senior capstone design sequence. This sequence is designed to allow students to work in small groups under the supervision of a faculty member. The first term of the series is a zero credit seminar series, designed to introduce students to senior design and allow stdents to interact, select a team, and select a project. During the second term of this sequence, the students are required to exhibit their ability to conduct appropriate analysis and devise a system, component, or process under a variety of realistic constraints. During the third term, students build and test their engineering systems. The student teams are required to integrate their engineering science knowledge, with appropriate design methodology, decision analysis, and project management. Multi-disciplinary projects and teams are strongly encouraged. Projects include safety, economic, environmental, and ethical considerations and require written and oral reports. Examples of senior design projects which have been completed include a battery-operated, reliable, water-resistant swimmer lap counter/timer, a soil resistivity meter which will allow real-time data transfer and processing at an archeological site, a Digital Signal Processing based speech frequency lab experiment, a device that will measure the force/pressure exerted by the foot while walking, and an experimental apparatus to analyze the stability and heat transfer characteristics of condensate liquid film in reduced gravity.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Mercer University first opened its doors on January 14, 1833. The College of Liberal Arts served as the University's academic cornerstone. Its School of Engineering was established in 1985 as the third academic unit offering baccalaureate degrees. The purpose of the School of Engineering is to educate students who are preparing to be practicing engineers, individuals who can responsibly contribute to a global society that is becoming ever more dependent on technology. An engineer takes the discoveries of the scientist, the tools of the mathematician, and the imagination of the inventor and transforms them into goods, services, and information to satisfy human needs. Mercer's School of Engineering offers rigorous engineering programs at the baccalaureate and master levels and includes a solid foundation in mathematics and sciences along with a broad range of courses in engineering topics. The program culminates in engineering design courses in which students explore solutions to recognized needs as a member of a team, since so much of modern engineering is a team effort. Engineering courses places emphasis on the written and spoken word; enabling graduates to effectively communicate their ideas to both technical and non-technical audiences. Because the computer is such an essential tool for analysis, the courses integrate computer methods of problem-solving. Within the engineering curriculum are the general education requirements which promote social, cultural, and global awareness, and draw on Mercer University's distinguished Judaeo-Christian ethical value structure. All of this contributes to the development of a practicing engineer who is a responsible contributor to the global society. Additionally, the School of Engineering concentrates on developing outstanding laboratory and design competencies; all students experience interdisciplinary team work at the senior level. The school achieves very high levels of faculty-student interaction throughout its curriculum. The faculty within the engineering school is dedicated to staying abreast of the latest developments and conveying that current practice to the students in a supportive environment. Each student is encouraged and expected to draw on faculty assistance for knowledge, motivation, value clarification, and transition to the world of engineering. The Mercer Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc. In addition to specializations that lead to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, the School of Engineering offers two Bachelor of Science (BS) degree programs. The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Management focuses on applying selected engineering tools to management decisions. The Bachelor of Science in Technical Communication provides a foundation in sciences, mathematics and technology with a strong emphasis on communication skills. Both of the BS programs are intended to provide a technical, scientific, and analytical foundation so the graduate can pursue engineering-related careers that require some engineering-like expertise. The programs are a mutual effort between the School of Engineering, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Stetson School of Business. Other schools at Mercer University include Tift College of Education, the School of Medicine, the Townsend School of Music, Walter F. George School of Law, College of Pharmacy and Health Science, James and Carolyn McAfee School of Theology, and Georgia Baptist School of Nursing.

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Applicants seeking admission to the School of Engineering must submit a complete application package to the Office of University Admission. Admission to the University normally requires graduation from an accredited, secondary school with a minimum of sixteen units of high school credit including English (4 units), mathematics (4 units), laboratory science (3 units), social science/history (3 units) and foreign language (2 units). Applicants are expected to be in good academic and disciplinary standing at their current or last institution attended. Students not meeting minimum admission requirements may have the following options: (1) Attendance at Mercer's Summer Program for new students to demonstrate their college preparedness. (2) Reconsideration for admission through submission of additional academic information (new SAT/ACT scores, high school transcripts). All applicants making application for admission are required to submit: an application for admission, a $50 non-refundable application fee, official high school transcript(s), official SAT or ACT test score (scores on official high school transcripts are accepted). Applications are accepted at any time, however, evaluations do not begin until September of an applicant's senior year of high school. An admission decision is rendered once all official documents have been received (transcripts, SAT/ACT scores). An applicant is notified of his/her admission or denial within two to four weeks of the completed application having been received and processed by the Office of University Admissions. It is recommended that applicants applying to the School of Engineering have at least a 3.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale and a score of 1,200 on the SAT. Additionally, it is recommended that applicants have a minimum 550 math score on the SAT or 24 math score on the ACT. All Students born after 1956 must provide a statement of immunization against Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), giving the month and year of immunization. A statement of "up to date" is not sufficient. Additionally, a Tuberculosis screening (within the past year) is required of all new students. Students at risk for TB will be required to have a PPD skin test (Mantoux). The tine tuberculosis test is not acceptable. Students should be tested regardless of prior BCG vaccination. Any student with a positive skin test will be required to provide a report of a normal chest x-ray (done after the positive PPD) to be eligible to register. Immunizations for the following diseases are recommended, but not mandatory: chickenpox (varicella), hepatitis A, hepatitis B, polio, and tetanus. The most recent tetanus booster should have been within the past 10 years. Immunization against meningococcal meningitis is recommended.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Applicants seeking admission to Mercer's School of Engineering should have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and at least a score of 1,200 on the SAT or ACT equivalent. Students must also demonstrate proficiency in mathematics and science.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International students wishing to apply for admission should request application forms from the Office of International Admissions. An application may be made in any given semester at least three months prior to the intended date of enrollment. An application fee of $100 is required. Qualified students applying for undergraduate studies whose native language is not English may be eligible for admission into the University, if they can show proficiency in English. The University's minimum proficiency level is a score of 20 on each section of the test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The minimum composite TOEFL score is 80. Qualified students with scores below these minimums, or who have no TOEFL score, may be conditionally admitted contingent upon their successful completion of English Language Institute course(s) on the Atlanta campus. In order to obtain full admission, applicants must submit an official high school transcript with official translations in English; proof of English proficiency as demonstrated by acceptable SAT or ACT test scores [official TOEFL scores of 80 IBT (internet based TOEFL), 213 CBT (computer based TOEFL), or 550 PBT (paper based TOEFL)] or successful completion of Mercer University English Language Institute course. Personal interviews may be required. Additionally, all students born after 1956 must provide a statement of immunization against Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), giving the month and year of immunization. A statement of "up to date" is not sufficient. Two doses of Measles (Rubeola) vaccine are required. You must have been at least 12 months old when the first Measles dose was received. Previous diagnosis of disease is proof of immunity against Measles and Mumps (a physician's statement is required) but not proof of Rubella. Tuberculosis screening (within the past year) is required of all new students. Students at risk for TB will be required to have a PPD skin test (Mantoux). The tine tuberculosis test is not acceptable. Students should be tested regardless of prior BCG vaccination. Any student with a positive skin test will be required to provide a report of a normal chest x-ray (done after the positive PPD) to be eligible to register. Immunizations for the following diseases are recommended, but not mandatory: chickenpox (varicella), hepatitis A, hepatitis B, polio, and tetanus. The most recent tetanus booster should have been within the past 10 years. Immunization against meningococcal meningitis is recommended.

Residency Requirements

Mercer is a private university and the entrance requirements are the same for all students, regardless of the state of residence.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Candidates for transfer admission from a regionally accredited college or university should submit an application for admission, a $50 non-refundable application fee, and official transcript(s) from all colleges/universities attended. Transfer candidates who are seeking full admission to the School of Engineering BSE degree program must satisfy the following conditions: (1) Have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA in all college enrollments; (2) Have a 2.5 GPA or higher in all degree relevant college math, science and engineering courses attempted. Courses are considered degree relevant only if they could be used (were an appropriate grade earned) to satisfy degree requirements in the specialization or program to which the student is seeking transfer admission. For the purpose of this computation, all attempts or individual courses are included. (3) Have completed courses, which transfer as CHM 111, PHY 161/PHY 121L, MAT 191, and MAT 192. (4) Be in good standing at their previous school---that is, not on warning, probation, suspension, or the equivalent. Candidates must have completed at least 9 semester hours of college work after high school graduation to be classified as a transfer student. Applicants with less than 30 semester hours of college credit earned must submit official high school transcripts and official SAT or ACT score reports. Course work with a grade of "C" or better that was completed at regionally accredited institutions will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis and considered for transfer as an equivalent Mercer Course or as elective credit. A minimum of 32 credits must be earned in residence at Mercer University for graduation, regardless of the number of credits accepted in transfer. These credits are generally the last credits required to complete the degree. At least 12 semester hours of upper division work in a major, concentration, or specialization, and 6 semester hours of upper division work in a minor, if elected, must be done in residence. The maximum credit allowed from all two-year colleges attended is 64 semester hours (96 quarter hours). Developmental and institutionally-based courses will not be accepted for transfer credit. In addition, courses in programs not available at Mercer (e.g., vocational programs and correspondence work) will not be accepted for credit toward a degree.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

Engineering students may pursue two specializations simultaneously. To do this, a student must officially declare each specialization, be assigned an advisor from each specialization, and complete all the requirements of each specialization. Students who pursue the B.S.E. degree may earn a second major in programs offered through the College of Liberal Arts. A second major in business, through the Stetson School of Business and Economics, may be earned only by completing all of the requirements for a second degree, the B.B.A. degree, including the general education requirements. A student must officially declare the second major or degree, and follow proper University procedures, which call for fulfilling the specific course requirements for the second major or degree, plus additional requirements that may be arranged on an individual basis. Students wishing to earn a second major or degree must request or seek a second advisor from that department, who will serve in addition to their primary engineering advisor.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Certain basic requirements must be met for admission to all of the graduate programs offered by the Mercer University School of Engineering. These requirements are intended to ensure that profitable graduate study will result from admission. Students may be admitted to the graduate program with "Full," "Conditional," "Non-degree" or "Transient" graduate standing.
Admission of undergraduate students to the integrated Master of Science in Engineering program is only open to Mercer students. The school limits enrollment to students whose grade point average at the end of their junior year is equal or greater than 3.0 and who have the appropriate undergraduate background for the graduate program they select.

All international students whose native language is not English must submit results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or a Certificate of Proficiency from an ELS Language Center. The minimum acceptable TOEFL score is 550. English proficiency at ELS Level 112 is expected.

Admission Categories

Full Admission
The requirements for admission with "Full" graduate standing are as follows:

1. Submit a completed graduation application along with application fee. Have original transcripts submitted directly from the institution to Mercer University School of Engineering.

International Students must have their foreign academic credentials evaluated by Engineering Credentials Evaluation International (ECEI.org) and have the evaluation submitted directly to the School of Engineering.

2. Hold a bachelor's degree in an appropriate field from an accredited institution; for MSE applicants, the program must be accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

3. Have an earned undergraduate GPA of 3.0 overall.

4. Meet all additional specific departmental requirements, if any.

Conditional Admission

Applicants who fail to satisfy all the conditions for full admission, may be accorded "Conditional" standing upon recommendation of the concerned department chairman. Upon admission, appropriate conditions will be defined, and must be met, to achieve "Full" standing. Once the defined conditions are satisfied, the student must petition the Graduate Committee for advancement to AFull@standing. Students must attain "Full" graduate standing to be graduated with the MSE or MS degree.

Provisional Admission

Applicants to the graduate program may be admitted provisionally until all application materials are received in the Graduate Programs Division. Once materials are received, the student's file is reviewed for appropriate acceptance status.

Non-degree Status

Students who do not wish to pursue an advanced degree in the School of Engineering, but whose undergraduate record indicates that they are otherwise qualified for admission, may take graduate courses as a non-degree student. Such courses will not normally apply toward a Mercer degree.

Transient Admission

Students in good standing at other universities may enroll in the School of Engineering as "Transient" graduate students. Such students must file an application for admission and provide verification of good standing status from their own graduate dean. Work undertaken in this status will not normally apply toward a Mercer degree.

Readmission

Students who interrupt the continuity of their graduate programs by failing to register for two consecutive terms (summer term excepted) must seek readmission by filling a Request for Readmission by August 1 for Fall Semester, December 1 for the Spring Semester, and May 1 for Summer term. Students admitted to the School of Engineering graduate program who do not enter in the term for which they applied, and subsequently wish to be considered for a later term, must reactivate their application for the new semester by notifying the Graduate Programs Division in the School of Engineering at least two weeks before the beginning of that term.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All international students whose native language is not English must submit results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or a Certificate of Proficiency from an ELS Language Center. The minimum acceptable TOEFL score is 550. English proficiency at ELS Level 112 is expected.

International Students must have their foreign academic credentials evaluated by Engineering Credentials Evaluation International (ECEI.org) and have the evaluation submitted directly to the School of Engineering.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
