The College of Engineering recently achieved top-10 status in research expenditures among colleges of engineering according to ASEE data. The research stories in the Fall/Winter 2018 NC State Engineering magazine illustrate the reason for this ranking, demonstrating the high caliber of our research and the faculty, staff and students conducting it. In this issue, we also highlight our Research Experiences for Teachers program, our Rural NC Internship Program, the progress of Fitts-Woolard Hall and the generosity of our alumni.
