Making (fun) multi-player gaming an educational experience
A new video game framework keeps multiple players engrossed in the learning experience while fostering collaboration and problem solving.
Paramagnetic spins take electrons for a ride, produce electricity from heat
“Paramagnon drag thermopower” converts a temperature difference into an electrical voltage. This discovery could lead to more efficient thermal energy harvesting, such as converting car exhaust heat into electric power to enhance fuel-efficiency.

College lands two major research projects
Engineering faculty members continue to attract new major research funding, with new projects that will advance 5G wireless networking and production of new biotherapeutics.
In our labs
Dr. Karen Boru Chen’s work in the field of human factors engineering explores how people interact with different types of systems — and how to make those systems safer and more efficient.
Research Triangle Nanotechnology Network
NC State, Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill may be fierce rivals on the basketball court, but the three universities are partners in an effort to enable innovative nanoscience and nanotechnology research, discovery, workforce development and education.
Researchers in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering are leading research on the impact of fats, oils and grease.
Research as recruitment
Summer research experiences held on campus help strengthen student skills. They also serve as a way for faculty members to recruit top graduate students.
Research overcomes key obstacles to scaling up DNA data storage
NC State researchers have developed new techniques for labeling and retrieving data files in DNA-based information storage systems, addressing two of the key obstacles to widespread adoption of DNA data storage technologies.
Ultrasound aligns living cells in bioprinted tissues
COE researchers have developed a technique to improve the characteristics of engineered tissues by using ultrasound to align living cells during the biofabrication process.
