About Us

The Materials Science Program at the University of New Hampshire


We're glad to tell you more about the Materials Science Program at UNH.  Our program includes 14 faculty and their respective research groups composed of graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, research scientists and research active undergraduates. Our program offers research opportunities in numerous areas of science and engineering that cross traditional departmental boundaries. These interdisciplinary projects emphasize the synthesis, characterization and utilization of nanoscale materials. 

Opportunities for Graduate Studies & Research Collaborations:

We offer competitive research assistantships for qualified graduate students. For information on how to apply to our graduate program, please visit our graduate studies page.  We also offer a 5-year combined B.S. degree in Physics and an M.S. degree in Materials Science - read here for more information.  

We invite prospective students and potential collaborators to learn more about us.  Please visit our faculty pages to see the cross-section of interdisciplinary research that constitutes our program and to learn more about the specific research interests of our faculty.

UNH Campus in the Fall


The University of New Hampshire campus is located in Durham, NH, a beautiful seacoast New Hampshire town.  Durham is ideally situated just 15 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, 15 minutes to Southern Maine, 45 minutes to the White Mountains, and 1 hour North of Boston.

The Materials Science Program is located in Parsons Hall on the UNH campus.  In 2013, a $60M renovation of Parsons Hall was completed, transforming our teaching and research facilities into state-of-the-art spaces.  Please come see for yourself!
