“The ‘E’ in Engineering is for Excitement!”
– Dr. Louis Martin Vega, Dean, College of Engineering, NC State
Established in 2013, the Engineering Village is an exciting living and learning environment for first-year students interested in pursuing engineering as a major at NC State. The program represents an exciting collaboration between the College of Engineering and University Housing.
Student living in the Engineering Village make NC State feel more like home by being part of a supportive and nurturing environment while connecting with peers who share similar interest and passions. We cultivate young minds into future engineers and successful alumni by providing personal, professional and leadership development for students. With a supportive and knowledgeable team that includes a full-time village director with industry experience, twelve upper-class engineering student mentors, and a Ph.D. Scholar-in-Residence, we ease the transition into NC State and the College of Engineering to ensure student success. Our community encourages collaborative learning, student-faculty interactions and engagement in high-impact co-curricular experiences beyond the traditional classroom environment.
