Centennial Campus: NC State’s INNOVATION DESTINATION

A successful enterprise can rest on its laurels or it can continue to blaze new trails. We have chosen the latter.

Vision 2034

We conducted four brainstorming sessions and engaged with more than 90 participants that included NC State staff, faculty, students, alumni and external stakeholders. When we finished, we had produced a ton of great ideas.

A Proving Ground

Centennial Campus is a self-sustained “city” - perfect for testing everything from smart grid deployment to advanced transportation technologies and human-powered health monitors.


Logic and creativity combine to produce eye-popping innovation. To foster discoveries, Centennial Campus will celebrate play, scholarly dialogue and meaningful interactions in new and productive ways.

Global Connections

Centennial Campus is moving to connect globally in ways not yet imagined.
