Driven by curiosity and innovation, engineering is one of the most in-demand career paths in the STEM fields. Unlike traditional engineering programs that are rooted in theory and mathematics, UNH Manchester's engineering technology (ET) programs emphasize applied, hands-on learning with state-of-the-art equipment.

Led by faculty who are industry experts, our ABET-accredited electrical engineering technology and mechanical engineering technology programs prepare you with the skills, knowledge and network to succeed in industry.

Don't just take our word for it: 88% of ET graduates were employed in the field within six months of graduation, according to a survey of our class of 2022. The survey also showed that ET grads earned an average starting salary of $65,000—8 percent higher than the national average starting salary for 2022 graduates.
