Graduate students drive research in the College of Engineering at NC State. The College is known nationally for innovative graduate degree offerings, a world-renowned faculty and groundbreaking collaborative research initiatives. More than 2,900 students are enrolled in our 13 doctoral and 21 master’s degree programs.
NC State is the only engineering college in the nation leading two active National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers, and graduate students play key roles in this important work. Our award-winning faculty stand among the best in the nation – 2 National Medal of Technology and Innovation recipients, 14 National Academy of Engineering members and 2 Directors of National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers.
Graduate students work and study in the new James B. Hunt Jr. Library on Centennial Campus; gain valuable experience through teaching assistantships; and connect with future employers at the NC State Engineering Career Fair, one of the largest events of its kind in the nation. After graduation, our students go on to top-notch positions in industry, academia and research laboratories.
