About

History

When NC State University was founded in 1887, the school embodied ideals that were rapidly transforming the field of higher education. Chief among them was the belief that colleges should not be reserved for a select few and that the children of farmers, mechanics and other workers should have access to the opportunities and benefits of higher education.

Education

With 12 colleges representing all major academic disciplines, more than 34,000 students and more than 2,300 faculty, NC State is the largest university in North Carolina. This is a pre-eminent research enterprise where undergraduate and graduate students learn from award-winning faculty.

Research

Wherever it starts — in a lab on campus, in a field in rural North Carolina, on an island in the Pacific — NC State research finds the same destination: the real world. Our faculty and students engage with real problems, and they find real solutions. Our researchers have developed energy-saving smart transformers and life-saving bomb sensors, handheld radiation detectors and cancer-killing nanodaisies.

We’re a leader in big data, biomedical engineering, materials science, food safety, translational medicine and more.
