Research at SDSU
SDSU's primary land-grant mission is to create opportunities for South Dakota through research and education. Research has been a vital part of SDSU since 1887 with the creation of the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station. Since that time, SDSU has been the reliable resource for 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.
