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, University Housing, and Living and Learning Initiatives. Students 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 interests 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, twenty-one upper-class engineering student mentors, and a Faculty-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.
“The ‘E’ in Engineering is for Excitement!”
