Imagine gaining confidence in using Python, Django, GIT, Linux as well as Google Cloud Platform and ETL (Extract, Transform and Load). Add to that social skills in collaboration and communication plus courses in analytics, using them to analyse and visualise data effectively — in short, the complete package of skills today’s top employers seek.

Next, visualise achieving all of the above at one of the top 10 tech cities in the US. Industry exposure — for example, through internships — is a given at this home to internet performance companies like Oracle Dyn, IT engineering organisations like Texas Instruments and robotics businesses like FIRST.

When you’re stressed, the charms of New Hampshire’s largest city are at hand, from the historic Palace Theatre to the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, home of Minor League Baseball’s New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Feeling adventurous? Check out the seemingly endless supply of outdoor activities at Lake Massabesic, a protected watershed that covers over 2,500 acres of land, or climb to the top of 150-foot boulder summit Rock Rimmon for the best views of Manchester.

A Master of Science in Information Technology from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) offers all of the above and more.

For those seeking the know-how to identify and respond to the complex information security threats that are increasingly common in today’s digital landscape, UNH provides a Master of Science in Cybersecurity Engineering. Graduates will be able to develop, integrate and evaluate secure IT systems and services for any organisation, ready for a variety of future-facing roles, such as cyber risk analyst, cybersecurity engineer or chief information security officer.

Another industry-focused offering is the Master of Science in Biotechnology: Industrial and Biomedical Sciences. This programme combines skill-based training in UNH’s state-of-the-art laboratory spaces and innovative experiential learning opportunities with local companies. It’s the ideal way to advance a career in the biotechnology, biopharmaceutical and regenerative manufacturing sectors — UNH, after all, is home to the Biotechnology Innovation Centre (BIC) and the BIC incubator space housing industry partners in the biotech, pharma and medtech fields.

When the pandemic struck last year, the university moved quickly. It accomplished more than just shifting classes online. Labs were converted into COVID-19 testing centres. Policies were put into place to safely reopen. Although physically apart, bonds between peers and faculty members were strengthened. Resilience prevailed. The coronavirus crisis brought out the finest in the UNH community.
