Serving the State and Beyond
UND is a Carnegie Doctoral Research Institution with an international reputation for research and scholarship, notably in health sciences, nutrition, energy and environmental protection, aerospace, and engineering. Although UND's research is felt around the world, it plays an important role in the emergence of North Dakota as a technological and economic leader.
Student Focused Research
At UND, teaching and learning, and research and scholarly activity are interrelated. Student research creates connections between the classroom and real-life. As a result, engaged faculty mentors conduct their own research on how students learn.
From Laboratory to Marketplace
Well-educated students are UND's No. 1 product, but research also produces scientific knowledge, publications, and advancements in certain arts. These advancements have commercial potential and can support a product or the foundation of a company.
