Welcome to the fall 2020 issue of NC State Engineering magazine.
In our labs
Loud booms sometimes heard on the ground floor of Engineering Building III on NC State’s Centennial Campus signal successful experiments in the Ballistic Loading and Structural Testing (BLAST) Laboratory.
Automated or semi-automated phone calls, also known as robocalls, are a major security concern for phone users in the United States. While most robocalls are an annoyance, some of these calls are specifically designed to target the vulnerable segments of our society.
Engineering lends a helping hand
In March, NC State students and faculty and staff members had traveled to the Musanze district of Rwanda. They were there to hold four days of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workshops in five rural primary schools as part of an NC State Alternative Service Break (ASB) trip.
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.
On a Thursday morning in late May, the machine shop in Engineering Building III on NC State’s Centennial Campus is quiet for the first time in a long time.
