Student and faculty engagement in research, scholarship and creative activity is central
to the mission of San José State University. Opportunities abound to pursue an exciting
array of basic and applied research. SJSU researchers investigate the airways and sea, pursue new knowledge of space and
planets, explore literature and the arts, examine health and social services issues,
and create partnerships with Silicon Valley's most progressive technology companies.
Each year, hundreds of local, state and federal agencies, businesses and private foundations
partner with SJSU faculty and students to perform research, conduct public service
and community projects, and pursue specialized educational activities.
