The World Knows Us. So Should You.

When the top organizations in the world are looking for research expertise or to test their products, they turn to the University of New Hampshire. Like Apple, Dell and other top technology companies that test their data and network product at the UNH InterOperability Laboratory. Or Nike, who utilized our wind tunnel – the longest of its type in the world - in their effort to help marathon runners break the two-hour mark. And NASA, who has partnered with UNH to support an array space missions and research. Here just a few highlights of our world-class facilities in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences:

UNH student at the John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center

The John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center immerses students to manufacturing technologies and provides them with hands-on experience, skills and knowledge to successfully transition and lead into the manufacturing sector.

unh students cycling at the physics flow facility

The Physics Flow Facility is the largest wind tunnel of its type in the world, allowing engineers to study aerodynamics in areas such as atmospheric wind over the ocean, wind turbine design or air flow around an airplane.

UNH students at the InterOperability Lab (IOL)

The UNH InterOperability Laboratory (IOL) allows students and employees to test networking and data communication products while working with some of the top technology companies in the world.

unh jere chase marine lab students

Jere A. Chase Ocean Engineering Laboratory features large wave and engineering tanks that let students conduct research in ocean engineering, ocean mapping, ocean acoustics, marine robotics and hydrographic surveying. It recently underwent a $3 million expansion.

Our faculty and researchers have achieved an array of awards and recognitions, from winning a Grammy to being elected into the National Academy of Engineering, to a variety of prestigious fellowships. In fact, the last eight faculty hires in mechanical engineering have won the prestigious National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award. Our researchers are also at the forefront of the university’s $107 million in annual competitive research expenditures. As one of only a handful of land, sea and space grant universities, UNH is a hotbed for research on the world’s most pressing matters, from climate change and ocean mapping to water quality and space exploration.
