Student Opportunities

The UNH Space Science Center offers exceptional opportunities for students interested in space science and astrophysics. Rare among academic programs in space science, students are able to design and build experiments, fly payload, and analyze the data from the Center's active program of developing payloads for sounding rocket investigations. We are among the top-ranked U.S. universities in NASA funding and have been designated a NASA "Center of Excellence" in solar-terrestrial theory.

Our faculty and students are members of the UNH Department of Physics. Your classes and degree are offered through the Physics Department, but you'll have the opportunity to work with faculty who engage in the interdisciplinary research at the Space Science Center. Space science research opportunities are available for undergraduates and graduate students.
