A state-funded $34 million project to upgrade key buildings for Radford University’s College of Science and Technology (CSAT) -- including renovating Reed and Curie Halls and updating the Cyber Security Training and Education Lab (CTEL) -- was recently authorized for planning.
 
“This renovation project will significantly benefit our students and faculty to advance both knowledge and research in the sciences, as well as the commonwealth,” Radford University President Brian Hemphill said. “The timing also is perfect to contribute to the demands of our state’s future economy given; for example, the stated need for cyber and computer science professionals and Radford’s growing expertise in this area.”
 
Renovations will cover a total of 94,840 square feet and will include facilities for the geospatial science, biology, chemistry, geology and physics departments. The updates to CTEL will create a better space for teaching and researching, in addition to modeling and simulating cyber threats.
 
“We are incredibly excited about the forthcoming enhancements to both science buildings,” CSAT Dean Orion Rogers said. “The project solidifies Radford University's commitment to providing the best learning and teaching environments and transforming CSAT into a premier science, technology and mathematics destination. The renovations will create new synergies between faculty and students and provide enhanced research opportunities.”
