Student Computer Requirements

Students must have a laptop with Internet capabilities for the MS in Analytics work. A personal computer (PC) is recommended for compatibility with programs used throughout the year. Students may purchase equipment from the UNH Computer Store with assurance of getting a compatible machine that will be supported on campus and be eligible for a free loaner system, if a warranty repair is needed. The UNH Computer Store prices are competitive, and in many cases they are the lowest prices anywhere.
