Fall/Winter 2018 NC State Engineering magazine
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.
From the Dean
The beginning of fall semester is an exciting time, as we welcome our first-year students as well as our returning students and faculty. In addition to assisting our new students with their adjustment to the rigors of university classes and life away from home, one of our jobs is to introduce them to the many opportunities the College provides to enhance their education beyond their classroom experiences.
Questions for Madison Maloney

Support of Fitts-Woolard Hall offers unique opportunities to current and future students
On Friday, April 20, 2018, the University broke ground on Fitts-Woolard Hall, the crucial next step in the College’s move to Centennial Campus. The new building will bring together innovators from the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering and the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE). Meet two alumni who have supported the project and are helping continue the College’s excellence in engineering.
