College Overview

The College of Sciences makes NC State the university of choice for diverse, high-performing science students and faculty in the biological, mathematical and physical sciences. These creative minds do the extraordinary to solve society’s biggest problems.

Building a world-class college means enrolling the brightest students and hiring the most talented faculty. But we face fierce competition for these top people, and resources from the state are limited. To attract the very best people to our college, we need scholarships, professorships and state-of-the-art facilities.

College Priorities

Extraordinary Opportunity

No priority is more important than safeguarding our ability to extend educational opportunities to bright, deserving science students. At a time when costs are rising, undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships represent a lifeline for students and their families.

Extraordinary Purpose

Outstanding faculty are like magnets; they attract other top faculty who, in turn, attract great students. Professorships and other endowed faculty positions help these researchers expand the scope of their world-changing activities, which often means offering exciting opportunities to students who will become the leading scientists of tomorrow.

Extraordinary Places

Paralleling Hillsborough Street, the Imagination Corridor is a half-mile passageway through our North Campus that would put NC State science and creativity on display. At its heart would be a “Crossroads” building, an iconic, engaging structure that blends form and function in a way that brings international attention to NC State’s historic core.

#3 and Rising

Sciences faculty helped NC State rank third in North America on Nature’s list of research rising stars.
