6. Summer Research Program The Summer Research Program is a six-week intensive summer program for students during the school’s summer semester. Student participants must be majoring in one of the academic programs offered by the CSE department. In addition, a minimum of 3.0 GPA and commitment to Emergency Management technology research are required.
Three selected faculty advisors will mentor 9 students each summer to work on Homeland security Emergency Management related projects. Each student participant will be working with a faculty advisor with special expertise and interests matched, as closely as possible, to the student's research interests and career goals.
13. leveraging JCSU established the HS (Homeland Security)-STEM Center of Excellence, which has achieved much success in a short time. Our goal is to prepare STEM graduates to join the workforce and fill the talent gaps needed in the United States. The Center has established partnership with Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, Carnegie Mellon University, North Carolina Biotechnology Center, University of Cincinnati, Virginia Tech, and etc. The center also provided mini-grant to faculty to conduct research related to HS issues.
14. leveraging Invited fellows to work with the JCSU faculty to conduct research in emergency management communication networks. Create partnerships with other institutions, as well as federal, state and local agencies to address the areas of national importance in HS-STEM.
Supported junior faculty and students to conduct research in the area of HS Related topics (NSF BRIDGE, NSF HBCU-UP)
Endowment fund of Department of Computer Science and Engineering to purchase the equipments and software to conduct research in the image processing and sensor networks.
15. leveraging Dr. Stacie Davis and two students worked with Lee-Ann Jaykus and Ruben Carbonell at North Carolina State University supported by DHS Summer Research Team Program for Minority Serving Institutions.
Dr. Rosypal spent 2 weeks conducting research in parasitological and food safety labs at Virginia Tech supported by JCSU HS (Homeland Security)-STEM Center of Excellence & NSF HBCU-Up Program.

19. Institutionalization/ Sustainability Students gain undergraduate research experience. Students apply internship and scholarship from DHS, DoD, and NASA.
Integrate the program with college and department marketing, outreach, and recruiting efforts.
Recognition of DHS Center of Excellence NDCIEM program on campus.
Faculty and students participants were highlighted through JCSU website and newsletters.
20. Community Building & Dissemination With president Carter’s vision that JCSU will be recognized as an institution with a focus on applied research, we established the Smith Institute for Applied Research in spring 2009.Dr. Attia take charge of Homeland Security-Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (HS-STEM) Center of Excellence. It prepares STEM graduates to join the workforce and fill the talent gaps needed in the United States. It will also support and enhance the quality and number of faculty research projects in this high-demand area.
Nationally, faculty and students attended the national conference to present their activities and apply for scholarship.
