About NCCU Academics Admissions Athletics Campus Life Giving Research


Important part of building the research and education infrastructure at the Center was through:

  1. installing new experimental equipment and computational research resources at NCCU,
  2. expanding research collaborations,
  3. establishing HBCU research and educational network.

Below is a brief overview of these activities:

Campus Enhancements

The CREST established strong experimental and theoretical research programs in nuclear physics, computational physics, nanotechnology, semiconductors physics, and microwave physics. In addition to this productive research we formed a unique research laboratory for formation of nanostructures and material characterization.

HBCU Research Network

In addition to the scientific impact of the research, CREST Center improved the research environment at NCCU by:

  • funding for postdoctoral researchers, who help remove limitations arising from high faculty teaching loads;
  • upgrading facilities through selective equipment purchases;
  • and supporting undergraduate and graduate student participation in research.
