Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

The College introduces design concepts and methodologies early in the common first year using case studies and student projects assigned as part of the introductory engineering course.

The College supports undergraduate student research and design through independent projects and studies, many funded through the NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates program. All majors require senior level design-based courses as well as capstone design courses.

Many projects are industrially based and funded. Team based design is the norm and multi-disciplinary projects are encouraged. Most senior design projects and courses require development of proposals to conduct the project, peer evaluations, presentation, and final project report submissions.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College of Engineering at NC State University is among the largest and most respected engineering colleges in the nation. With nine degree-granting departments within the College and three more affiliated departments in other colleges, NC State Engineering offers its more than 10,000 graduate and undergraduate students a broad and diverse engineering education. The College offers 18 bachelor’s, 21 master’s and 13 doctoral degree programs that emphasize a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach and encourage undergraduates to participate in research alongside graduate students and faculty.

The College has a very successful research program with more than $180 million in annual research expenditures. Current high profile research programs include two National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers (ERC) " the Future Renewable Electric Energy Delivery and Management (FREEDM) Systems Center and the Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST) Center. NC State is one of only two schools to currently lead two ERCs and one of only two schools to ever be awarded the lead role in three.

In addition, the College is home to one of the main hubs for the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL), is the lead institution in the DOE Consortium for Nonproliferation Enabling Capabilities and is one of only two National Security Administration-funded Science of Security Lablets. The College leads PowerAmerica, a National Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NMII) charged with furthering the domestic production of wide bandgap semiconductor technologies and leads the Southeast hub for another NMII called the Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute that aims to spur technological innovation to improve the efficiency of advanced manufacturing in the United States.

The College is wrapping up a transition to Centennial Campus, a groundbreaking research campus that brings together academia, private businesses and government agencies and is a model for the 21st century research-intensive university campus. Centennial Campus opens up opportunities for students to engage in studies with world-class university researchers and equipment and a highly educated workforce.

The College’s outstanding faculty includes 15 members of the National Academy of Engineering, two members of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, two winners of National Medal of Technology and Innovation and an Emmy Award winner. Our young faculty members have received 68 National Science Foundation CAREER awards since 2000.

The College offers a robust online learning program called Engineering Online and is consistently ranked by US News & World Report in the top 10 among online graduate engineering and computer information technology programs.

College of Engineering students are among the best in the nation, with more than 74 percent of incoming freshman graduating in the top 10 percent of their high school class. Once on campus, undergraduate students participate in a variety of opportunities, including national competitions and a highly successful entrepreneurship program. First-year students begin their freshman year with an engineering competition " the Freshman Engineering Design Day competition, where teams of students work to solve various engineering challenges.

Graduating seniors in the College are highly sought after by industry and graduate programs. In a 2010 survey of top national recruiters produced by the Wall Street Journal, NC State’s College of Engineering ranked 15th nationally for quality of its graduates. Our students are regularly recruited by companies such as IBM, Cisco, NetApp and others.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
