Answering the call
The Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks presented unprecedented challenges to our country. Chief among the tasks facing the United States after the attacks: innovation to meet those challenges. In fields from textiles to foreign-language training, NC State has been at the forefront, yielding better fabrics for firefighters and technology for detecting improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in combat zones.
The Real Home Field Advantage
All school colors are not created equal - at least where football fields are concerned.
Making Research An Open Book
How one NC State professor saw an aspect of literacy education being neglected, and decided to do something about it.
Larger Than Life
Three NC State design students bring a downtown Raleigh facade to life with "The Amazing Sky Race." The building is "the biggest canvas of my life," said one designer.
Real Research, Real Results
From eradicating bed bugs to programming bandages, research at NC State produces results with real impact.
Breaking Down Innovation
NC State researchers test innovative construction materials and designs to ensure they're safe. And that process involves breaking stuff. Big stuff.
Food For Thought
From peaches to green beans, summer’s bounty is here. And eager home cooks are busy canning fruits and vegetables for the months ahead. But canning is one hobby that can kill you if not done properly. NC State is making sure people do it the right way.
Eyes on the Future
From the moon landing to missions to Mars, NC State has strong ties to space exploration. Learn how you can explore an interest in space research, whether you major in aerospace engineering or prefer food science or textiles instead.
Researchers with the joint NC State/University of North Carolina Biomedical Engineering team are studying how weightlessness affects bone density in mice, zeroing in on load-sensing bone cells.
Sending Out an SOS
Weightlessness in space disrupts plant growth. NC State researchers are exploring ways to solve the problem so that plants can help feed space travelers and clean the air and water on future missions.
