North Carolina State University
NC State was founded with a purpose: to create economic, societal, and intellectual prosperity for the people of North Carolina and the country. It began as a land-grant institution teaching the agricultural and mechanical arts. Today, it is a preeminent research enterprise that excels in science, technology, engineering, math, design, the humanities and social sciences, textiles, and veterinary medicine.
NC State students, faculty, and staff take problems in hand and work with industry, government, and nonprofit partners to solve them. Its 34,000-plus high-performing students apply what they learn in the real world by conducting research, working in internships and co-ops, and performing acts of world-changing service. That experiential education ensures they leave ready to lead the workforce, confident in the knowledge that NC State consistently rates as one of the best values in higher education.
