North Carolina A&T State University

Greensboro, North Carolina

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is a public, land-grant, high research activity university committed to fulfilling its fundamental purposes through exemplary undergraduate and graduate instruction, scholarly and creative research, and effective public service. The university offers degree programs at the baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral levels with emphasis on agriculture, engineering, science, technology, literature and other academic areas.

As one of North Carolina’s three engineering colleges, the university offers Ph.D. programs in engineering. Basic and applied research is conducted by faculty in university centers of excellence, in interinstitutional relationships, and through significant involvement with several public and private agencies. The university also conducts major research through engineering, transportation, and its extension programs in agriculture.

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University aspires to be the premier interdisciplinary-centered university in America that builds on its comparative advantages in engineering, technology, and business; a strong civil rights legacy; and status as an 1890 land-grant institution. The challenges of preparing our students to meet the complex needs of the global society necessitate that these exemplary and relevant educational experiences are inherently global in nature and interdisciplinary in focus. The commitment to excellence and the unique NCA&TSU legacy of nurturing the individual student remain strong.

The University’s evolution toward interdisciplinarity responds to societal and intellectual issues that require new solutions. Cross-functional teams with expertise from a variety of disciplines and perspectives are the best hope for the solution of complex modern challenges. As new problem-solving methods are needed, new disciplines are created at the intersection of old ones. Students are enthusiastic about courses that link learning to contemporary issues. An interdisciplinary education provides students with not only essential knowledge, but also connections across the disciplines, and finally, the ability to apply knowledge to life beyond the campus.

Interdisciplinary studies build upon disciplinary excellence while inspiring new possibilities beyond the strengths of traditional fields of study. This model provides a focus for curriculum innovation, fosters communication across disciplines, and promotes partnerships with public and private entities. This university creates a learning environment in which opportunities to build solutions are based on expertise in more than one discipline. Teaching focuses more on the ability to organize, assess, apply, and create interdisciplinary knowledge rather than the transmission of existing knowledge to students.
