Student Stories & Testimonials

“I love all of the different opportunities at the UNH-IOL. Even though a student may be placed in one Testing Group, there are tons of opportunities to get involved in other projects, from labwide committees like HR and Training, to STEM outreach through working with the UNH Tech Camps, programming classes at local middle and high schools, and our own High School Internship Program. There are an overwhelming number of experiences that I've gained at the UNH-IOL that I never expected, and I don't know where I'd be without them.”

“UNH-IOL provides educational opportunities to its students that no other technical facility will offer in this area (while taking classes as well). We get hands on experience with cutting edge technologies, we work together troubleshooting issues with customers/vendors, while working together internally as a team to improve procedures and productivity, as well as build professional relationships with the staff and students. I would like to thank IOL for giving me the opportunity to learn and grow within my Test Group and to take that knowledge and apply it to different careers and opportunities outside of the lab.”

“Applying to the UNH-IOL my freshmen year at UNH was the best decision I ever made for myself. The lab has taught me invaluable lessons that have shaped me into the person I am today. The IOL has helped me become a better professional, problem-solver, manager, teacher, student and friend.”

“The UNH-IOL has to be the only place in the world where students with little-to-no experience can come in and learn networking technologies in a hands-on fashion, and work with cutting-edge equipment that has not been even released to the public yet. I attribute getting the position I did 100% to the UNH-IOL and the experience I gained there, which I would not have gotten any where else.”
