Degree programs offered online and on campus in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math

Southern New Hampshire University has long been committed to building degree programs to meet current workforce needs. Engineering, for example, continues to be in high demand in both New Hampshire and throughout the United States. There are typically more than 1,000 engineering positions open at any given time in New Hampshire alone. The Computer Science program prepares students for careers as software developers, a position projected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to grow 24% from 2016 to 2026, much faster than average for all occupations.

SNHU offers educational pathways in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to help our students get the skills they need to become successful.
