Across the globe, our graduates and our research are changing the world of advanced manufacturing, operations, and the service sectors. We are pushing the boundaries of 3-D printing, regenerative medicine, and health systems engineering. We’ve created a legacy of success by partnering with industry, government, and universities. We have some of the finest faculty and the most promising students studying engineering today.
Our program is on the move, demonstrating consistent multi-disciplinary excellence at the highest level. Our graduate program produces students who excel in both industry and academia. They are innovators, educators, and even Nobel Peace Prize recipients.
5 Research Areas
Unlike many industrial engineering departments, NC State offers a wide range of focus areas for our students.
Living in Raleigh
Year after year, Raleigh, NC ranks among the five best places in the country to live and work. With moderate weather (71°F avg temp), it’s only two hours from the beach and three hours from the mountains. Raleigh is both welcoming to families and individuals alike and is proud of its well educated workforce and multi-cultural environment.
Explore the next frontier of biotechnology and prepare for a career in an exciting field poised for explosive growth. NC State industrial engineers are moving regenerative medicine from discovery to commercialization. Our engineers collaborate with physicians, therapists and other medical and biotech professionals on advanced 3-D modeling, bioinformatics, surgical machining, pharmaceutical production, image processing, physiological signal processing, and biomechanics.
Our Health Systems Engineering Certificate Program, the first of its kind in North Carolina, is designed to prepare you for a career in the healthcare field. After successful completion of the program, you will receive a Health Systems Engineering Certificate which sets you apart and makes you more marketable for a future career in the healthcare industry.
Since the Industrial Revolution, production engineers have worked to improve the flow of materials through our factories.
Keep the materials, products, labor, and services of a growing global economy moving. NC State industrial engineers focus on managing the flow of these resources throughout the supply chain. Our students and faculty focus on designing systems that provide an excellent, consistent customer experience while keeping costs down through the efficient use of resources.
