From the Dean

Each year, the beginning of the fall semester brings a flood of students to campus, all celebrating some milestone in life — the first year away from home, matriculation into a chosen discipline, or the final semester or two before graduation. This fall marks a special milestone. Our entering first year students are the much anticipated “Engineers of 2020.”

The Fall/Winter 2016 NC State Engineering magazine features the investments we are making to continue to enhance the education we provide our students, the research we conduct to improve lives and the economy and the outreach we conduct to ensure that future engineers will be prepared for the exciting world they will encounter after graduation.

Beyond the classroom

Advances in driverless cars, stories about computers learning to best mankind in games of skill and the prospect of a computer posing as a human handling your next online customer service experience have brought fresh recognition to the field of artificial intelligence (AI).

From the Outback to the Wolfpack

Dr. Paul Franzon learned to fly as a student in his university glider club, chasing kangaroos up and down the ridges of the Outback in south Australia. Today, you can catch a glimpse of him in the sky above Carter-Finley Stadium before the Wolfpack football team takes the field.
