Our Strategic Research Areas
NC State researchers find innovative ways to improve our well-being — whether they’re nourishing healthier animals and more nutritious crops or using textile technology to 3D-print fibers that better mimic those in the human body.
In an increasingly data-centric world, our researchers are improving the information we collect — and making sure it’s used for good. We use analytics to predict natural disasters and to advance promising fields like quantum computing.
Our faculty collaborate across disciplines to study our past, our present and what it means to be human. The scientific discoveries we’re making today will become tomorrow’s fundamentals in fields like chemistry and physics.
We use innovative technology to make smarter machines, more efficient processes and safer communities.
NC State research benefits the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe.
