Making Engineering Oval a reality
The Engineering Oval building* will be the new home of the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering, the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and the dean’s administration.
Ranked as one of the top 10 public programs in industrial engineering by U.S. News and World Report in 2015, the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) had a fall 2015 enrollment of 340 undergraduates and 215 graduate students (135 MIE/MS students and 80 doctoral students).
- Bachelor of Science in industrial and systems engineering
- Accelerated BS/MS in industrial and systems engineering
- Master of industrial engineering (MIE): residential and online
- Master of Science in industrial engineering (MSIE)
- Dual Master of industrial engineering/Master of business administration (MIE/MBA)
- Doctorate (Ph.D.) in industrial engineering

- The Engineering Oval building will be the fourth academic engineering building on Centennial Campus. Plans are in place for a fifth building to be constructed after Engineering Oval is completed.
- The building will measure 227,000 square feet.
- It will house more than 100 classrooms and state of the art laboratories.
- The estimated cost of Engineering Oval is $154 million.
How You Can Help
While passage of the Connect NC public bond referendum on March 15 would provide $75 million for the Engineering Oval project, it would not fund all of the projected construction costs. The NC State Engineering Foundation has committed to raising $60 million in private donations to help pay for construction. Commitments of about $20 million have already been made. Early donors of $50,000 or more to the project will be part of the Cornerstone Society, a select group of donors who will:
- Receive named recognition inside the Engineering Oval building
- Be invited to a special groundbreaking ceremony on Centennial Campus when construction is set to begin
- Receive an invitation to other VIP events and receive special insider information about the project.
