NCSU | An Organic Partnership

NC State’s Organic and Carbon Electronics faculty cluster is providing hands-on research opportunities for Wake Technical Community College students.

When Ben Hines left his undergraduate studies at NC State in 2009 to join the workforce, he never imagined he’d be back 15 years later getting a doctorate in physics. 

While working at a construction job, his conversations with the company owner, a physicist, piqued his interest in the field and inspired him to give school another chance. In 2019, he enrolled part time at Wake Technical Community College and eventually transferred to NC State. Hines has since completed his bachelor’s in physics and is now studying organic photovoltaics in the Organic and Carbon Electronics Lab (ORaCEL) as part of his graduate work.
