For first time, researchers can measure insecticide on surface of mosquito nets
Researchers from NC State and the CDC have come up with a technique to measure how much insecticide is found on the surface of mosquito nets – paving the way for efforts to determine how long the nets are effective.
NC State NanoWolves team brings home five awards in Biomolecular Design competition
The NanoWolves, a team of six NC State students, won five prizes at BIOMOD, an international biomolecular design competition held at University of California San Francisco.
Technique allows integration of single-crystal hybrid perovskites into electronics
An international team of researchers has developed a technique that, for the first time, allows single-crystal hybrid perovskite materials to be integrated into electronics. Because these perovskites can be synthesized at low temperatures, the advance opens the door to new research into flexible electronics and potentially reduced manufacturing costs for electronic devices.
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.
Family honors longtime ceramic engineering department head with naming
Room 3010 in Engineering Building I on NC State’s Centennial Campus is occupied by the head of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). Dr. Donald Brenner, Kobe Steel Distinguished Professor and MSE department head, is the current occupant. Gerald Kriegel hopes that whomever sits in that office adopts an open-door policy for students. After all, that’s what his father did.
Department heads named in Materials Science, Computer Science
The College has named new department heads in the Department of Computer Science (CSC) and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE).
