The College of Sciences makes NC State the university of choice for diverse, high-performing students, faculty and researchers from around the world who work together to solve society’s biggest problems.
Leading the Way in Science
The College of Sciences at NC State connects people and programs in the biological, physical, chemical, mathematical, statistical and earth-system sciences. Our college is where some of the brightest, most creative minds in science come together to tackle problems that affect us all. We recognize the value of a diverse academic community and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for learning and discovery.
We’re at the forefront of several growing areas of science — such as big data, bioinformatics, environmental health science, geospatial analytics and precision medicine — that examine the world’s grand challenges and teach students skills highly valued by employers.
Our faculty are award-winning innovators in their fields. And they’re training the next generation of scientists to lead the way in industry, laboratories, nonprofit research organizations, medicine, government agencies and numerous other workplaces.
Our faculty conduct groundbreaking research, share their work with the public through outreach and communication, and garner national and international awards and honors — all while educating the next generation of science leaders.
