From the work NC State faculty members and students conduct in laboratories and in the field, beautiful images sometimes emerge.

All art should become science, and all science art.

Friedrich von Schlege

The University has begun recognizing this beauty with an annual NC State Research Image Contest. The 2017 contest winners were announced in August, and the College of Engineering was well represented.

The contest was open to faculty and staff members, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. The program is funded by NC State’s Graduate School and Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development, with support from University Communications and the College of Sciences. Entries were received in four categories: Graphics and Illustration, Microscopy, Photography and Video.
