The Applied Radiation Sciences Laboratory (ARSL) is located in the Engineering and Computer Science Complex of the South Carolina State University (SCSU). It is a unique state-of-the-art teaching/research facility operated by the Nuclear Engineering Program (NEP) in the College of Science, Mathematics, Engineering & Technology (CSMET). Nunclear Engineering Program of SCSU is the only undergraduate nuclear engineering program located at a Historically Black College/University (HBCU).
The mission of the ARSL which supports the mission of the University and the College is to produce engineers who are highly skilled, competent and well prepared in the fields of Nuclear and Radiological Engineering, to enter professional careers in the public and private sectors and pursue degrees beyond the baccalaureate level in professional or graduate school.
The ARSL serves as a principal investigating conduit in the Palmetto State for research and development in nuclear applications, such as nuclear activation analysis, radiochemistry, medical isotope, radiation damage, material sciences, homeland and national security applications.
The goal of the James E. Clyburn University Transportation Center is to assist federal, state and local agencies in meeting their goals to develop a highly skilled workforce to meet the future needs in transportation.
A major focus of JECUTC's intermodal research, education, and technology transfer programs is recruitment and training of minorities and women for tomorrow's transportation workforce. The goals of the Center are achieved through:
A multi-modal mission that addresses passenger and freight transportation with an emphasis on highway and transit programs and facilities.
A multidisciplinary approach to research, education, and technology transfer activities. Emphasis is placed on the importance of linking the various modes of transportation using advanced technologies and concepts to address future critical transportation needs.
A diversely trained transportation workforce for the next millennium. This strategy includes building the professional capacity of the transportation workforce, creating general public awareness of transportation benefits, and preparing the next generation of transportation professionals through a multidisciplinary education and training program.
A multi-modal research component with primary emphasis on developing solutions to a variety of problems including activities related to:
human performance and behavior;
transportation system operations and maintenance;
utilization of advanced technology;
energy and environment;
tools for transportation modeling, design, and development;
an education and training component at the following levels: K-12, Undergraduate, Graduate, and Adult and Continuing Education
