Shaping the next generation of electrical pioneers through hands-on and real-world experience
About This Program
With topics from technology communications to scientific programming to digital design, our ABET-accredited Electrical Engineering program gives you the practical experience to meet both industry demand and your career goals. Small class sizes mean big opportunities to collaborate with faculty who are industry experts, giving you one-on-one attention to excel in the dynamic, highly rewarding field of electronic design and development.
Please note: The Engineering Technology program offers only junior- and senior-level coursework, so you must have an appropriate associate’s degree to be admitted.
Degree Option: Computer Engineering Technology
Further focus your electrical engineering degree with the Computer Engineering Technology option, giving you deeper insight into the world of computing. Explore software programming, circuit design, network security and more — all in a hands-on, experience-driven environment.
Labs & Studios
Electrical Engineering Lab
The electrical engineering lab houses 10 uniform stations, each equipped with an oscilloscope, industry-standard CAD software and more to give you the hands-on experience that puts you ahead.
Equipped with electronic workspaces, soldering stations, 3D printers and more, the capstone lab offers creative space for seniors working on their culminating projects.
Meet Our Faculty
Our campus is in the heart of the region’s cultural, economic, entertainment and government activity — putting unlimited internship opportunities at your doorstep. We’ve partnered with local businesses to give you the real-world experience that sets you apart. Engineering technology majors have interned at many high-profile organizations in the area, including:
- BAE Systems
- The MITRE Corporation
The culminating experience of the program, the Capstone puts your classroom learning into action as you find solutions to real-world technological problems in design, fabrication and testing. You’ll work with an actual client company to define the problem, prepare a budget and research, design, build and test applicable software and/or hardware.
We've partnered with NHTI and Nashua Community College to offer articulation agreements that give students a seamless transition from community college to UNH Manchester.
NHTI Articulation Agreement
Students who earn an associate degree in Mechanical, Electronic, Robotics and Automation, Computer or Manufacturing Engineering Technology at NHTI are automatically considered for admission to UNH Manchester's bachelor's degree program in either Electrical or Mechanical Engineering Technology, without having to complete a separate application. Students will need to complete and file the Dual Admit/Intent to Release Information forms with the NHTI registrar’s office during the semester they intend to graduate, then the registrar’s office will forward the file to UNH Manchester to process admission.
Nashua Community College Articulation Agreement
Students who earn an associate degree in Computer or Electronic Engineering Technology at Nashua Community College are automatically considered for admission to UNH Manchester's bachelor's degree program in either Electrical or Mechanical Engineering Technology, without having to complete a separate application. Students will need to complete and file the Dual Admit/Intent to Release Information forms with the NCC registrar’s office during the semester they intend to graduate, then the registrar’s office will forward the file to UNH Manchester to process admission.
Former UNH Students: If you previously held degree status at UNH but did not complete your degree, you will need to complete a separate application for readmission. Please contact UNH Manchester's admissions office for more information, or download the application for readmission here.
International Students: Please visit the international student admissions page for more information and to apply.
Scholars in Science and Technology Program
The UNH Manchester Scholars in Science and TEchnology (SST) program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program and administered by the University of New Hampshire at Manchester.
The STEM scholarship is a renewable scholarship. The amount of the award varies based on the student's academic grade level and number of years in the program. Scholarships are typically renewable (pending funding) provided the students meets the requirements of the program.
