Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

The faculty are top-notch and are very willing to open up their doors and talk with whomever asks. The graduate students are also a fairly tight-knit group. The location is very good (minutes from downtown Raleigh) and I really like the degree to which the university collaborates with industry leaders to support and promote research.

NCSU Chemical Engineering is a great program and you can see all the hard work and effort that goes into making it that way!

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a small program compared with those traditional majors like Chemical engineering, Chemistry, etc. But the students are competitive in the job market. I really like what I'm doing now!

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program in English at NCSU is a fairly well-rounded program with well-known scholars across the field. The workload is fairly heavy as with most graduate student programs. For the most part, the professors are receptive to student inquiry and are very much interested in helping graduate students make it to the next level, whatever that might be. The surrounding area is also an appeal as it quite beautiful in Raleigh but some areas of course are not always safe at night.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Its a small program inside of a much larger and more prestigious Food Science program. We benefit from the collaboration from food science but there are still limitations imposed by a small program, and are often overshadowed. As long as research overlaps with the Food Science program however, there are lots of resources to utilize and support to be found.

Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: large department with many approachable professors Cons: low gender diversity

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall the program is okay. It's more focused toward finding a job than doing research. Hence, the department rank is low.

Degree: Architectural Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I would said that the Agricultural Eng. program at NC State is diverse and oriented to "real world applications".
