Proximity To Talent
NC State’s award-winning Centennial Campus enables proximity to world-class researchers and career-ready students, providing a rich environment for innovative thinking, real-world problem solving and cutting-edge research and development. No other research campus in North America offers a unique mix of corporate and university buildings, housing and dining options, and outdoor amenities, such as a championship golf course, walking and biking trails, a hotel and conference center and public lake.
Centennial Campus is home to more than 75 companies, government agencies and nonprofits, all benefiting from direct access to some of the nation’s top university programs in engineering, textiles and veterinary science, in addition to numerous other departments and institutes. This density of knowledge fosters creative thinking that leads to new products and ideas.
Carved out of land deeded to the university by the state of North Carolina more than 30 years ago, Centennial Campus has grown to be one of the top research campuses in the U.S. And it’s not finished.Learn more about Centennial Campus
