The Research Operations laboratories were established in 2002 at NDSU under the Office of Research and Creative Activity for the purpose of conducting large-scale, multidisciplinary research for government and industry. These resources are now located in two state-of-the-art research buildings that have been constructed in the NDSU Research & Technology Park. 

The 75,000 square foot Research 2 (R2) facility was opened in 2004 and includes cleanroom, laboratory, and office space. The cleanroom includes Class 100 and Class 10,000 bays encompassing a total area under filtration of 12,000 square feet.  The R2 building houses the research operations focus areas in microfabrication, device packaging, device testing, and reliability/failure analysis.  The installed equipment investment is approximately $10M.

The Research 1 Addition (R1A) was opened in 2013.  This building was constructed to easily facilitate public-private sector partnerships.  It is a 35,000 square foot facility connected to the research administration building at NDSU (R1).  The R1A facility houses a comprehensive set of tools for materials synthesis, processing and characterization.  The tool set includes the ability to conduct combinatorial materials research using robotic machines and software.  A complementary capability was established to support rapid biological test and screening for anti-fouling, anti-microbial, and other coatings.  The overall equipment set investment exceeds $20M.
