Protecting the Pack: Overcoming COVID-19

At NC State, we are committed to protecting the Pack as we work through COVID-19.

To do that, every member of the community must do their part. As we work toward a fall return, this site presents protocols and guidelines to help promote a safe and supportive environment for faculty, staff and students.

Our top priority in all decisions is the health, safety and well-being of our Wolfpack community.

Fitts-Woolard Hall | NC State ISE | 01

Fitts-Woolard Hall is the Future Home of ISE

The passage of Connect NC in March 2016, brings us closer to putting our faculty, staff, and students together with top businesses and government agencies on Centennial Campus which serves as a model for the ideal 21st-century research campus. Fitts-Woolard Hall will be the fourth academic engineering building on Centennial Campus. It will sit between the Hunt Library and Engineering Building I.

  • It will measure 227,000 square feet
  • It will house more than 100 classrooms and state of the art laboratories
  • The estimated cost is $154 million
Alumni Engagement Program | NC State ISE

Alumni-Student Engagement Program

ISE has launched our Alumni-Student Engagement Program. The mission of our program is to enhance the personal and professional development of our students by building long-lasting relationships with our alumni and friends. At the same time, our alumni mentors will:

  • build long-lasting relationships with our students
  • create an employee pipeline for their businesses
  • increase their connectivity with our department

It’s simple. Just take a couple of our students to lunch and share your wisdom and experience by answering their questions in a fun and relaxed environment.

Broaden Your World

Student Organizations: Choose from our student organizations or other Engineering student organizations to network and learn outside the classroom.

Co-op Experience: Gain hands-on job experience while pursuing your degrees, and get paid for it, through the Cooperative Education Program.

Study Abroad: Engineering is a global enterprise. Many employers are looking for graduates with second languages and international exposure. Study Abroad can make that happen.
