Last Choice, Best Decision

Looking back on her early days as an undergraduate student, Assistant Professor of Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science (TECS) Jessica Gluck ’05, ‘07 can only laugh at her plans to leave NC State so soon. 

Textiles today are innovativelife savingcreativeglobal, all around you and thriving right here in North Carolina. Our textile students build their education on a foundation of science that takes them to fashion housesNASA, textile design companies, laboratories, graduate school and beyond. From designing elephant collars that protect remote villages and innovating bite sleeves that shield military officers from harm to developing fabrics that harvest energy and garments that monitor your vital signs, our students lead lives of impact. Along with our faculty and staff, they embody the Think and Do philosophy that is NC State.
