College’s Birthday

College of engineering building

The NC State College of Engineering turns 100 years old on Sunday! On May 28, 1923, what was then the North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts established the School of Engineering.

We have a lot to be proud of from the last 100 years. Over the last century, NC State engineers and computer scientists have made their marks on the world. Our students and alumni have led research breakthroughs, helped make engineering and computer science more diverse and inclusive, and made progress solving some of humanity’s most pressing challenges.

Engineering Online had its first graduate in 1984 in the Master of Engineering degree program and was the only distance degree program in engineering.  Now, there are 18 programs available.
