The amazing folks at the NCSU Libraries offer a wide variety of research-related workshops for graduate students, including Writing Research Article Introductions, Searching Scholarly Databases, Publishing Smartly, and more! These are great particularly for newer graduate students to help you get acclimated to the expectations of a research career and the processes you will be doing constantly.
All required members of the Advisory Committee must be members of the NCSU Graduate Faculty. Others may serve only in an ex-officio capacity, and must be identified as such on the appointment form. A vita for ex-officio members must be attached to the appointment form. A student may submit a written request to change the membership of his/her advisory committee at any time. The request is subject to the approval of the Committee Chair, the Director of Graduate Programs, and the Graduate School. If a minor is elected, a minor representative on the committee is required. Only one representative is required for regular or interdisciplinary minors. There must be a representative from each component of a split minor.
The thesis track consists of 36 hours of coursework, with at least 27 hours of Department of Communication classes (prefix COM in the NCSU Course Catalog). The program of study includes the same core courses required of all M.S. students.

She also received a 2006 Outstanding Teaching Assistant award at NC State. She received the 2008 College of Engineering Nancy G. Pollock PhD Dissertation award, and her dissertation was also selected as the NCSU nominee to the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) Dissertation award. She was a co-op for Cisco Systems during the Fall 2007 semester, a research intern at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center during the summer of 2007, and a research intern for Intel in the summer of 2006. Nothing in this requirement is intended to modify or supercede the NCSU policies on intellectual property and copyright (REG 01.25.3) or the UNC Copyright Use and Ownership Policy that applies to the entire University of North Carolina System, including . These policies afford university faculty members, students, and staff members certain rights and responsibilities with regard to their creative works. The purpose of this section of the MEAS Graduate Handbook is simply to inform you of your responsibility to leave your research materials in good and useful order upon graduation, subject to the terms of the NCSU/UNC policies cited above, for the continued good of the research program in which you carried out your thesis work. As an M.S. graduate from MEAS, you will have benefited from participation in a research program that existed because of the efforts of your advisor and his or her previous students; your parting obligation to the program is to help your advisor pass it on to the next student, as you found it or better.The creation of original cataloging records for all materials at the NCSU Libraries is done with OCLC Connexion, our bibliographic utility software. All theses, dissertations, and Design special projects should be entered and uploaded onto WorldCat via Connexion and then loaded back into Unicorn, with the OCLC number as the title control number.
