South Carolina State University will dedicate its $24.5 million Engineering and Computer Science Complex Friday.

The 86,500-square-foot complex at the Orangeburg campus includes classrooms, research centers, laboratories, offices and other academic support spaces.

“This new facility serves as an integral part of student learning outcomes and hands-on training capabilities, which in turn provides our students with the necessary tools they need to thrive and compete on a global level,” said Cynthia Warrick, S.C. State interim president. “We also want to provide opportunities for collaboration with private and public partners to provide research experiences for our students and faculty.”

The complex will house the university’s nuclear engineering program, as well as the departments of civil and mechanical engineering technology, mathematics and computer science, and industrial and electrical engineering technology.

The university’s centers for energy studies and modern manufacturing also are in the building.

Dwayne Wilson, president and CEO at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, will keynote the dedication event. The event begins at 10 a.m.
