North Carolina State University

United States of America, North Carolina, Raleigh

NC State University is based in Raleigh, North Carolina, about halfway down the East Coast of the United States. Since 1887, we’ve strived to offer world-class teaching and research. Today, we’re ranked in the top 1% of universities on the planet. NC State is a land-grant institution, which means we have a duty to open the doors of education for everyone. We’re a Research 1 university, recognized worldwide for our big ideas and bigger impact. And we’re a public university — one that believes in community, equity, sharing what we learn and serving the greater good. At NC State, you get all the opportunities and resources you’d expect from the largest university in North Carolina — without sacrificing the attention and care of a smaller school. And we’re consistently ranked as one of the best-value colleges in the country. When you start here, you can’t be stopped. Education for Everyone NC State excels in science, technology, engineering and math. We’re also at the forefront of teaching and research in agriculture, business, design, education, humanities and social sciences, natural resources, textiles, and veterinary medicine. This is a comprehensive research university, consisting of 12 colleges and 68 departments, and we’re open to lifelong learners from all around the world. Bright Ideas, Brought to Life NC State is a vibrant hub for discovery, innovation and partnership. We help talented people join forces to tackle the challenges facing our world. It’s what we were built to do. Our award-winning Centennial Campus is one of the premier public-private research parks in North America. And NC State is one of just a handful of universities ranked in the top 15 for both undergraduate and graduate entrepreneurship by the Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine — making us the No. 1 entrepreneurship program in the Southeast in 2022.
