MAE celebrates 56 years

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at NC State University officially turned 56 years old on July 1, 2022.

Welcome to the College of Engineering

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.

“It’s not easy being a woman in STEM and engineering, but I do think it’s extremely rewarding because I’m able to offer my perspective, diversity, and ferocity to my team. The most successful advice given to me is to get a mentor who is also a woman in STEM or engineering who you can discuss the challenges with together.”
