About NC State Investor Relations

NC State was founded with a purpose: to create economic, societal and intellectual prosperity for the people of North Carolina and the country. We began as a land-grant institution teaching the agricultural and mechanical arts. Today, we’re a pre-eminent research enterprise that excels in science, technology, engineering, math, design, the humanities and social sciences, textiles and veterinary medicine.

NC State students, faculty and staff take problems in hand and work with industry, government and nonprofit partners to solve them. Our 34,000-plus high-performing students apply what they learn in the real world by conducting research, working in internships and co-ops, and performing acts of world-changing service. That experiential education ensures they leave here ready to lead the workforce, confident in the knowledge that NC State consistently rates as one of the best values in higher education.

Each year, NC State adds $6.5 billion to the statewide economy, equivalent to creating more than 90,000 new jobs. That represents significant return on investment for the citizens of North Carolina in the form of research advances, innovative technologies, successful companies, skilled graduates and new jobs waiting for them.

Our 9,000 faculty and staff are world leaders in their fields, bridging the divides between academic disciplines and training high-caliber students to meet tomorrow’s challenges. Together, they forge powerful partnerships with government, industry, nonprofits and academia to remake our world for the better.

NC State is leading efforts to curb nuclear proliferation, develop a smart electric grid, create self-powered health monitors, help farmers confront climate change and build a new American manufacturing sector. Our award-winning Centennial Campus is home to more than 70 public and private partners — as well as the innovative Hunt Library, which Time magazine has dubbed “the library of the future.”

Key Projects

Fitts-Woolard Hall

Partially funded by the State of North Carolina NC Connect Bond, Fitts-Woolard Hall is the fourth in a series of engineering buildings on the Centennial Campus precinct, which will complete the College of Engineering’s (COE) presence on The Oval. This project accommodates the moves of Fitts Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering (CCEE), and the Dean’s Administration from the North Campus precinct to further unify the college and promote opportunities for synergies and collaboration. The building will support broad initiatives in the areas of: advanced materials and manufacturing; robotics and sensor technology; service sector engineering; critical infrastructure and security; transportation and logistics; and energy and environmental systems.

Plant Sciences Initiative

The vision for the new Plant Sciences Building is to create a highly collaborative and interactive environment, where researchers from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) and from across the university can build imaginative and far-reaching multidisciplinary partnerships with scientists from government, industry, and regulatory agencies. The goal of these interdisciplinary, research-team partnerships is to find innovative and creative solutions for the grand challenges of agriculture, agribusiness, and plant research, including those regarding food production, sustainability, disease resistance, and climate change.

The building design will promote creativity and collaboration. This five-story building will be approximately 199,000 gross square feet (GSF) comprised of research labs, office space, corporate lab/office suites, hearth/atrium space, support space, and shared, flexible conferencing space. The partial fifth floor will house Biosafety Levels (BSL) 2 and 3 rooftop greenhouses.

Carmichael Addition & Renovation

The project demolishes the existing 48,000 sq. ft. Carmichael administration building and constructs an approximately 82,800 sq. ft. addition. The addition will house student recreation spaces that may include: fitness, functional training, wellness resources, rock wall, teaching kitchen, etc. Specific elements will be determined through student input and feedback during design phase (Fall 2016 and Spring 2017).

The program spaces within the Carmichael Complex are not sized appropriately to support the current or projected growth for recreational spaces. In addition, the existing building does not comply with accessibility or electrical system requirements and contains asbestos. The addition will also require renovations to approximately 1,000 sq. ft. of adjacent Carmichael Gym facility for accessibility and connectivity. The project relocates an existing campus steam line and includes a new fire suppression alarm system and sprinklers throughout the existing Gym.
