We teach smart prosthetic legs to heed an amputee's thoughts. We test how bridges and buildings stand up to two million pounds of force. We lead national initiatives to rein in the spread of nuclear weapons and roll out the smart grid.
How do we do it? By tasking world-leading minds with solving our toughest problems. By sending cutting-edge research out into the real world. By partnering with industry and government to meet society's grand challenges. By training high-performing students to lead tomorrow's workforce.
That's data in action. That's NC State — creating prosperity for all.
