Entrepreneur Builds Steam at NC State
From an early age, Ben Alig has taken an entrepreneurial approach to life. Learn about how the STEAM program opened doors for this junior poultry science and agribusiness management major.
As one of only six poultry science departments in the United States – and with increasing worldwide demand for poultry – it’s our job to prepare students for careers in the burgeoning poultry industry.
We offer two poultry science degree tracks: a technology-focused degree to prepare students for a career in agribusiness, and a science-focused degree that prepares students for graduate or professional school. We also provide a very popular poultry science minor.
And any of our advanced degrees — three master’s options, a feed milling graduate certificate and a Ph.D. — can advance your career.
Prestage students and faculty are trailblazers. Our innovations range from in ovo vaccination and in ovo feeding to feed technologies that improve bird health.
Join our flock and you’ll be part of one of the best programs in the world.
