College hosts Business North Carolina round table
The College of Engineering hosted a roundtable discussion on energy presented by Business North Carolina magazine on June 12.
New microneedle technique speeds plant disease detection
Researchers have developed a new technique that uses microneedle patches to collect DNA from plant tissues in one minute, rather than the hours needed for conventional techniques.
NC State queues up to advance quantum computing
We’re joining forces with industry and academic partners to lead the way in quantum computing — and train the field’s next generation.
Discovery sheds light on synthesis, processing of high-performance solar cells
Halide perovskite solar cells hold promise as the next generation of solar cell technologies, but while researchers have developed techniques for improving their material characteristics, nobody understood why these techniques worked. New research sheds light on the science behind these engineering solutions.
Breathing new life into old bridges
Bridges across our state are in rough shape, but NC State alumnus Brad McCoy has developed a solution to give them new life — and keep us safely on the road.
Metal foam stops .50 caliber rounds as well as steel – at less than half the weight
Armor using composite metal foam can stop ball and armor-piercing .50 caliber rounds as well as conventional steel armor, even though it weighs less than half as much.
Research overcomes key obstacles to scaling up DNA data storage
New techniques for labeling and retrieving data files in DNA-based information storage systems address two of the key obstacles to widespread adoption of DNA data storage technologies.
Student team will represent U.S. at Global Grand Challenges Summit
A group of five NC State engineering students is one of five teams selected by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) to represent the United States at the 2019 Global Grand Challenges Summit in London this September.
Gubbins receives Outstanding Global Engagement Award
