The North Carolina State University College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Photographs, 1963-2002 and undated, include black and white photographs of classrooms; students; faculty, administration, and staff; various labs and equipment; events; and other programs and activities associated with the college's five departments. Of particular note are the photographs of the computer lab and an early photograph of the construction of the North Carolina State University nuclear reactor.

In 1960, the departments of Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, and Experimental Statistics joined to form the School of Physical Sciences and Applied Mathematics. In 1965, the Dept. of Biochemistry was formed within the school. The school became the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences in 1987. As of 2008, the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences includes five major programs. These programs include Chemistry; Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Science; Mathematics; Physics; and Statistics.
