Further information on the department can be found at: http://www.mae.ncsu.edu. The University is located in the technology-rich Research Triangle metropolitan area. The Research Triangle area is frequently recognized in nationwide surveys as one of the best places to live in the U.S. We enjoy outstanding public schools, affordable housing, and great weather, all in the proximity of the mountains and the seashore. To continue providing job-ready graduates for North Carolina’s ever-growing tech economy, the state’s largest public university will get even larger in the next few years.Essential Job Duties:
North Carolina State University will add about 4,000 students – 2,000 undergraduates and 2,000 graduate students – in engineering disciplines and computer science over the next five years. The growth will push NC State’s College of Engineering to around 14,000 students and the university’s total student population to more than 40,000.
The growth will be funded by Engineering North Carolina’s Future, a state legislative initiative that will provide NC State $20 million over the next two years to hire additional faculty as well as support staff including academic advisors and laboratory personnel to support the larger student body. The legislature is also providing NC State $30 million to support facility upgrades to accommodate these additional STEM students.
