Our educational laboratories are an integral part of the electrical and computer engineering undergraduate program at UNH. Our educational laboratories provide a setting to investigate the theories and concepts being presented and provide "hands on" design experience.

Electrical and computer engineers are required to master a diverse set of skills. Topics such as:

  • electronic and micro-electronic circuit theory
  • digital electronics and computer architecture
  • signal and system theory
  • electromagnetics and wave propagation
  • communication and network theory
  • control system theory
  • probability and statistics

to name just a few.

It is essential that the ECE engineer not only masters these skills, but also be able to apply these skills to the solution of pragmatic problems. Our educational laboratories provide a setting to investigate the theories and concepts being presented and provide "hands on" design experience.

Laboratories are supervised by ECE faculty with help from graduate teaching assistants. Some advanced design laboratories are open seven days a week and twenty-four hours a day. In addition to the educational laboratories, the ECE computer cluster provides word processing, graphics, database, spreadsheet, mathematical modeling, design simulation, and Internet applications. The ECE cluster is open 24/7.
