What do our students say?
I was initially a bit intimidated about the research component of the graduate degree. However, through the nurturing and encouragement of great faculty members, I gained confidence. I have learned and grown through my experience at the NCA&T Graduate College. I have accomplished goals that I couldn't have even imagined before. I was the recipient of the "Outstanding Thesis Award." I am really proud of the person who I have become!
Myra Wilson - MS in Adult Education
I am excited about my work in Waste Management and Renewable Energy Production. We are working on converting animal waste into renewable energy to decrease dependency on fossil fuels. This will have a positive impact on our environment and the economy. Academically, professionally, and personally, NC A&T has been an amazing graduate college experience. My peers and professors really made me feel at home!
