Leaders in Their Fields

At the heart of a world-class College of Sciences are dedicated, inspiring faculty who lead the way in research and teaching.

Our faculty are members of renowned societies like the National Academy of Sciences and American Association for the Advancement of Science and winners of many prestigious national and international awards. Since 2016, we’ve had 17 winners of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, one of the nation’s top honors for young faculty. And each year, our scientists bring in tens of millions of dollars in funding for innovative research that sheds new light on science and how it can help us all.

And they do it all while helping our students succeed by providing exceptional teaching, advising and mentoring.

The Place for Top Faculty

NC State and the College of Sciences not only attract the best — we help them become better. Here, faculty find the resources they need to do extraordinary work. They have access to state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities and equipment and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. And with NC State’s Centennial Campus and proximity to the thriving Research Triangle Park, chances for industry partnerships abound.

It’s not all work and no play here, though. Raleigh is one of the fastest-growing urban centers in America. A top spot for young professionals and families, Raleigh is nationally recognized as a great place to live and a city on the rise.
