Student & Graduate Reviews

3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Great for textile industry or academia. Good location with many apartments within walking distance. Coming from a larger city with much more active community made transition harder. Not bike-friendly at all, good grocery stores nearby but have to drive to.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The Instructional Technology Program at NCSU is completely online making it convenient for working professionals like myself. The Online Education system at North Carolina State University is one of the best in the nation. I have also been very impressed by the quality and knowledge of the Professors. At times I feel that I enjoy the social dynamic of having class on campus and the real interaction with students and professors that happens there. Overall it's a great program and I would recommend it to anyone interested.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

As a first year graduate student, the pros of NCSU are the quality of professors, faculty, and colleagues. I am also impressed with the diversity of classes offered and "after-school" symposiums and guest speakers. These pros will help to build a network, marketable for employment post-graduation. An area of improvement could be that, due to budget cuts, many of the course material is online. This makes it difficult and expensive for the graduate student to print out and highlight texts, vital to constructing a critique or analysis of a body of texts.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2016

The Chemistry Department graduate school at NCSU is extremely challenging with a very heavy workload, especially for 1st and 2nd year students. A student is tested on his/her ability to think and learn quickly, and to prove their understanding of the material that ranges across all of chemistry and even biology and medicine. Those who are not able to perform to this standard are usually unable to achieve the level of Ph.D. These challenges generate extremely competent professionals who are all positioned to make great advances in the field of chemistry.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

Jenkins MBA is a really good place for Supply Chain oriented people. Although it is a new program, it became quickly well known in the industry because of the qualified alumni.

An education from NC State is invaluable when entering the job market. The quality of the education is respected throughout the nation not just North Carolina. The instructors push you to earn your degree rather than pass them out.

The graduate program at NC State University has been very helpful in accelerating my career and has allowed me to focus on what I enjoy in Civil Engineering. Learning is very important to me and to my career choice, so being able to obtain my master's degree through NC State has provided that opportunity for me.
