As lifelong members of the Wolfpack, our faculty, alumni and students are vital to the excellent reputation the STEM Education department has today.

Alumni, Faculty & Friends

The connections made and support provided as a member of the STEM Education department extend far beyond graduation. Our alumni go on to positively affect their communities as they apply the knowledge gained from a highly experiential education rich in science and technology. Because STEM Education graduates are in high demand, the majority of our alumni hit the ground running, confident in their ability to apply skills to improving their schools, pupils and society as a whole.

We couldn’t do it without a robust faculty and staff, as well as generous contributions from alumni and donors. For those considering a position on our STEM Education team, you’ll find the resources of a large university such as NC State right at your fingertips, while our small classroom focus and tightly-knit STEM Education community provide the support you need to excel in your career.

For those interested in donating to our program, we encourage you to choose the destination of your gift so that it applies directly to STEM Education-related scholarship opportunities, graduate fellowships and research.

Celebrating the Success of our Alumni

Graduate students from the STEM Education department are recognized within academic circles and throughout the educational world as movers, shakers and leaders in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
