A Community Tailored to You

Time and again, our students and alumni speak to the environment at the Wilson College of Textiles as its greatest strength. We are a tight-knit community of learners who are excited to address textiles-related grand challenges from how we protect first responders and advance technologies for sustainable fashion to how we filter the air we breathe and the water we drink. While you may attend the largest university in North Carolina — and be able to take advantage of all of the resources that NC State offers — you will be a part of the Textiles family and have all of the benefits that come with being a student in a smaller college: the opprtunity to know your professors and have them know you and help you work toward your goals; personalized advising; and comprehensive career development that will prepare you for success.

Located on award-winning Centennial Campus, you will be a short walk from the internationally renowned James B. Hunt Jr. Library, a place where students, faculty, and partners gather to research, learn, experiment, collaborate and strengthen NC State’s long tradition of leading transformative change.
