Volunteer | Alumni Engagement | NC State ISE


The success of our students is made possible by the contributions of our alumni volunteers. When you volunteer your time through classroom learning, semester projects, internships and co-ops, and industry tours, you enrich the students’ experience and prepare them for the future.

Volunteering through the department is an excellent way for you to help make a difference in someone’s life. You can give back to your ISE community, help a department that helped you, and improve the education of future industrial engineers. Besides, it just feels good to volunteer!
