Come be a part of the new renaissance in US manufacturing. NC State industrial engineers are leading the way to a better future with lean, adaptable operations. Our focus is on addressing our nation’s most pressing manufacturing issues. We tackle industry challenges with the use of big data, automation, and robotics. Nanomanufacturing and 3-D printing are cutting edge technologies we use as well.
Our industrial engineers are experts in boosting the productivity of present systems. We apply state-of-the-art processes and disruptive technologies to improve the way the U.S. manufactures.
Our students and faculty focus on research to advance modern manufacturing system technologies. We also develop new manufacturing systems and processes with application in:
- Power Electronics
- Micro/Nano-scale Materials and Processes
- As well as other high tech products
CAMAL – The Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics
The Laboratory for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics is the heart of the center. It is under the direction of Ola Harrysson. Professors, researchers, students, and industrial partners all use the lab for their multidisciplinary projects. The scope of these projects reach well beyond the field of Industrial and Systems Engineering into areas such as:
- Human and Veterinary Medicine
- Materials science
Our lab has several different commercial rapid prototyping (RP) machines. This includes the first Electron Beam Melting (EBM) in the United States.

James T. Ryan Professor and University Faculty Scholar
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
- surgical machining
- pharmaceutical production
- image processing
- physiological signal processing
Our faculty and students are using medical imaging, CAD and rapid prototyping to create custom medical implants, prosthetic devices, and medical instruments.
We believe 3-D printing may hold the key to solving some of today’s biggest health challenges, including the growing of organs and tissue. With rapid prototyping, our engineers are producing biomedical models to help surgeons. We are also designing custom biopolymer scaffolds for tissue engineering of bones and organs.
