JACKSONVILLE -- March 11, 2002 -- Dr. Randy K. Smith and Dr. Guillermo Francia, III, of Jacksonville State University's Department of Mathematical, Computing and Information Sciences were recently awarded a grant exceeding $58,000 over a three-year period from the National Science Foundation. The grant is entitled "Integration of Wireless Technologies into an Undergraduate Networks Exploration Laboratory."

According to Dr. Smith, the grant, along with the laboratory space projected for the renovated Ayers Hall, will put JSU computer science students "at the leading edge of computer networks technology."

This grant, coupled with Dr. Francia's Versatile Networking Laboratory, provides JSU undergraduate and graduate students with some of the best equipment in the state.

According to Dr. Smith, "by matching this grant and the commitment to quality lab facilities in Ayers Hall, JSU again demonstrates its commitment to keeping our students on the leading edge of technology and providing them with the best possible opportunities for employment in the twenty-first century."
