The NSA funding, reportedly $60.75 million, for the big data lab, is the largest sponsored research contract in the university’s history.

Besides a collaborative project on cyber security with the NSA, NC State also has multiple existing partnerships with the NSA’s parent agency, the Department of Defense.
