What sets us apart:

When the top organizations in the world are looking for research expertise or to test their products, they turn to us. Apple, Dell and other top technology companies test their data and network products at the UNH InterOperability Laboratory, while Nike utilized our wind tunnel — the longest of its type in the world — in an effort to help marathon runners break the two-hour mark. NASA, meanwhile, has partnered with us to support an array of space missions and research. Join us at UNH’s CEPS, and let the world get to know you.
