Launching the next generation
NASA astronaut Christina Koch, a three-time graduate of NC State, knows how to thrive working from home, which she did flawlessly during a record-breaking 328 days in space. She’ll share her message of how NC State helped prepare her to become NASA’s most accomplished female astronaut on Dec. 4 as the featured speaker at the university’s first virtual commencement.
From the Dean
Welcome to the fall 2020 issue of NC State Engineering magazine.
Alumna named to Fortune 40 under 40
Rashida Hodge, an alumna of the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) and executive at IBM, was recently named to Fortune magazine’s 40 Under 40 Technology list.
The College of Engineering took beneficial occupancy of Fitts-Woolard Hall on July 24, 2020. Coming in at approximately 225,000 gross square feet, NC State’s newest engineering building provides the crucial next step in uniting the College on Centennial Campus.
NC State Day of Giving focuses on student impact
NC State held its second annual Day of Giving — a 24-hour fundraising campaign to maximize support for the University — on Sept. 16, 2020, and the College of Engineering’s alumni and friends showed the strength that is the Wolfpack.
Fitts-Woolard Hall effort is powered by alumni giving
Meet two engineering alumni who have made support of the Fitts-Woolard Hall project a priority and learn why they decided to give.
Engineering a more inclusive campus
On a recent campus visit, alumnus Timothy Humphrey spent time with the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity and learned more about what the office’s programs deliver to students. “It really hit home for me,” he said. “Meeting some current students and seeing them take advantage of OIED’s resources made me say this group could really use some help.”
Meet the Dean’s Circle
Meet some Dean’s Circle donors, and learn why they give.
