A podcast produced by the NC State Graduate School that looks to pull back the curtain on graduate education at NC State and beyond.

Shaping the World

When you pursue a graduate degree at NC State, you aren’t just preparing for the “real world” — you’re shaping it. Our master’s and doctoral students work alongside our faculty to solve the big problems: finding economically and environmentally sustainable energy sources, improving human health and creating prosperity.

We work to apply technology, critical thinking, the humanities, and analytics to the task of building a better, safer world. And we do it in collaboration with government, industry, business, and nonprofit partners at work around the globe.

A Graduate School Podcast

Join Peter Harries, Dean of the Graduate School, as he talks with current students, alumni and other guests about their pathways into and through their graduate careers.
