An extraordinary year

As we close the books on 2018, join the College of Engineering as we take a look back at the extraordinary work that has been accomplished. From the naming of the fourth engineering building on campus to the College climbing in rankings, 2018 has proven to be an amazing year.

Technique allows integration of single-crystal hybrid perovskites into electronics

An international team of researchers has developed a technique that, for the first time, allows single-crystal hybrid perovskite materials to be integrated into electronics. Because these perovskites can be synthesized at low temperatures, the advance opens the door to new research into flexible electronics and potentially reduced manufacturing costs for electronic devices. 

The high beam, which sits at the top of an elevator shaft in the building, was painted white. It was placed on two NC State red saddle horses on the morning of the 12th, and workers and NC State students, faculty and administrators were invited to sign it.

First year engineering students showcase projects, new skills at design day

Organize 1,371 first year NC State engineering students into 334 teams charged with creating a unique design using less than $40, and a little chaos is sure to abound. But so are plenty of creative devices — like a sorting hat from Harry Potter that “sorts” people into majors, or a Wolfpack baseball-themed pinball game.
