The philanthropic Zucker family of Charleston and Clemson University recently announced plans to build the Zucker Family Graduate Education Center on the former Navy base in North Charleston.

The center will offer master’s and doctorate degrees in energy systems engineering and will be financed in part by a $5 million gift from the Zucker family. University officials hope to see the $20 million space completed by 2014.
