research-based information and community leadership. Today, research provides a solid
knowledge base for economic development, academic programs, and experiential opportunities for students.
Primary strengths include agriculture, engineering, human health and nutrition, renewable energy,
pharmaceutical sciences, geospatial information sciences, environmental sciences, and many other
fields. Business Services at SDSU
