The UNH Computer Science curriculum emphasizes the fundamentals. We focus on teaching skills and knowledge that leave our graduates feeling confident in an ever-changing field. Requiring our students to gain a solid foundation in science and mathematics fosters an environment that encourages strong problem-solving skills and abstract thinking. Students also leave our program with solid-footing in software engineering. Since the major tenets of our curriculum are not just about teaching our students to program, our graduates are able to go out into the professional world prepared for a wide-range of jobs and to pursue advanced degrees.
