A Year in Review
As we say goodbye to another year, join the College of Engineering as we take a look back at 2017 and the extraordinary research and work that has been accomplished. From improving in graduate program rankings to two new department heads, 2017 has proven to be a successful year.
Live fall 2017 departmental graduation ceremonies
Can’t make it to one of the fall 2017 departmental graduation ceremonies? Some of the departments within the College of Engineering offer live streaming. Check out the list.
Senior design program focuses on real-world engineering
For more than 50 years, the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering’s Senior Design Program has engaged students in meaningful projects that benefit communities across the state.
NC State engineering student Kobi Felton receives prestigious Marshall Scholarship
Senior Kobi Felton gets great news: He’s been selected for two years of graduate study in the U.K. with support from a Marshall Scholarship.
Graduate student places as finalist in Collegiate Inventors Competition
Sangchul Roh, a chemical engineering Ph.D. candidate at North Carolina State University, was placed as one of six finalists in the graduate student portion of the Collegiate Inventors Competition. Roh, who is advised by Dr. Orlin Velev, INVISTA Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, was nominated for his submission “Elastic Biocompatible Inks.”
Study shows need for adaptive powered knee prosthesis to assist amputees
Study shows adaptive robotic prosthesis could be helpful to amputees attempting to adapt to real-world situations, like carrying a backpack.
Textile engineering student helps Adidas engineer the future
Textile Engineering major Kevin Harrow has a passion for creating and innovating, both of which he was able to do during the six-months he spent as an intern working in Germany at the Adidas international headquarters.
In our labs
One way to describe Dr. Gracious Ngaile’s lab in Engineering Building III on NC State’s Centennial Campus is “heavy metal.”
Engineers across borders
The College helps revive a study abroad program that takes students to China.
Thin layers of water hold promise for the energy storage of the future
Research in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) has found that a material that incorporates atomically thin layers of water is able to store and deliver energy much more quickly than the same material that doesn’t include the water layers. The finding raises some interesting questions about the behavior of liquids when confined at this scale and holds promise for shaping future energy-storage technologies.
