PSM YouTube VideoNorth Carolina State University Alumni reflect on their experience in various PSM programs:

“When I heard that NC State developed its own power systems master’s degree program, I was very intrigued. The fact that it’s so focused and can be completed in a year’s time added to the list of positives.”
— PSM EPSE Alum Ryan Benjamin, Electrical Engineering Intern at Eaton Energy Solutions, Raleigh, NC

“The PSM/MMB program is special because it gave me a well-rounded education through classes in business, biotechnology, and microbiology. The program has provided me the opportunity to gain exposure to various companies throughout the area. It has also given me contacts in these different companies that has proven beneficial when job hunting.”
— PSM Alumna Jaime Rain, Schering-Plough, RTP, NC

“The Professional Science Master’s program in Microbial Biotechnology at NCSU has helped me gain an in-depth understanding of how the pharmaceutical industry operates from product conceptualization to market approval.”
— PSM Alum Patrick Mandulak, Novozymes, Franklinton, NC

"The PSM/MMB program at NC State gave me tremendous opportunities to gain invaluable experience in many different areas of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. I learned how to work well in cross-functional teams, to be a leader, to ask questions and explore all possibilities, and to grow comfortable with the responsibility of juggling numerous projects at one time. I was able to gather a vast network of professional contacts and resources, as well as a trusted mentor who has given me excellent career advice, all of which led me to my position as a process validation engineer. In this role, I have a great deal of responsibility and must be able to ask questions, express my opinions, and develop creative solutions to complex issues. I am able to do all of this quickly and confidently because this program taught me how to pull together resources and troubleshoot problems. Because of this program, I am a more capable scientist and engineer than I would have been otherwise."
— PSM Alumna Kristen Eads, GSK, Zebulon, NC
