Ask an Engineer Series:
“What is Artemis?

Engineering Communications recently spoke with the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering’s Dr. Andre Mazzoleni and Dr. Steven Berg to learn more about NASA’s Artemis program as well as student opportunities in research, rocketry and space exploration available at NC State.

Engineering North Carolina’s Future

Engineering North Carolina’s Future, a North Carolina legislative initiative, will provide NC State $20 million over the next two years to hire additional faculty as well as support staff including academic advisors and laboratory personnel to support the larger student body.

The legislature is also providing NC State $30 million to support facility upgrades to accommodate these additional STEM students.

Fitts-Woolard Hall

The College’s newest facility marks a crucial next step in the College of Engineering’s move to Centennial Campus, providing critical infrastructure that allows faculty members and students to leverage the power of convergence across disciplines in an atmosphere unmatched anywhere in the nation.
