We Solve Problems
Wherever it starts — in a lab on campus, in a field in rural North Carolina, on an island in the Pacific — NC State research finds the same destination: the real world. Our faculty and students engage with real problems, and they find real solutions. Our researchers have developed energy-saving smart transformers and life-saving bomb sensors, handheld radiation detectors and cancer-killing nanodaisies.
We’re a leader in big data, biomedical engineering, materials science, food safety, translational medicine and more.
The Office of Research Commercialization supports NC State’s research enterprise by facilitating the commercialization of university research discoveries by the private sector to support economic growth and enable societal well-being.
University-industry partnerships accelerate innovation and solve complex challenges. NC State has the resources companies need to stay competitive — like future workforce, subject-matter expertise, or state-of-the-art labs and equipment.
