Open House

Virtual Open House

Due to the pandemic, many public events have been moved online. This is the virtual replacement for open house day for the MSE department. Here you will find an introductory PowerPoint that goes over our program as well as information on our national ranking and other fun statistics. After these slides, you’ll find demo videos of experiments that would normally be done in person with the students to give you a taste of some of the fun parts of MSE.

If you have any additional questions not answered by the introductory PowerPoint please contact Katie Shaffer. Thank you for your time and we hope this page gives you a good look into what the MSE department here at NC State is all about.
