NEW! Mentor Lunch Program

ISE is proud to announce that we have launched a new Mentor Lunch 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.

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.

  • It will measure 227,000 square feet
  • It will house more than 100 classrooms and state of the art laboratories
