Cyberattacks with the potential to expose sensitive information and cripple basic services could start with what would seem to be the most harmless of computer functions. Timekeeping. It’s a vulnerability that has raised growing concerns as more homes, businesses, utilities and other critical services rely on the internet and GPS to function, and each week […]
Before bioengineering at Clemson, Julia Brisbane studied piano for 12 years at a magnet school for the arts in Charleston, South Carolina. Math and science classes were not her top priority then, but attending an EMAG!NE event changed everything. EMAG!NE — a program offered by the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences — inspires […]
Madison Maddox thrives on caffeine, late-night brainstorming sessions, and the triumphant moments when hard-fought goals are achieved. The junior computer science major and Calhoun Honors College student from Beaufort, South Carolina, says her biggest challenge is prioritizing time management while navigating a schedule packed with academic and extracurricular activities. But if these are the best […]
Some of South Carolina’s manufacturers are lowering their energy bills by tens of thousands of dollars and reducing their carbon footprint with the help of a free Clemson University program that is entering its second year with plans to more than double its client list. The Industrial Assessment Center at Clemson University provided voluntary assessments […]
Doctors typically use SPECT scans to take 3-D images of internal organs, but Clemson University researchers are re-purposing the technology in a project that could help clean up waste left from nuclear-weapons production. Brian Powell and his team are pioneering the use of SPECT scans to examine how water and radionuclides move through soil packed […]
Helicopters, tanks and other vehicles could someday be made of “smart material” that senses damage, similar to how nerves tell the body it has been injured, with the help of new research based at Clemson University and funded by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory.
James Righter had a 20-year career in the Marines before retiring as a lieutenant colonel. When it was all over, he packed up in Quantico, Virginia and headed south for Clemson University, where he is now a Ph.D. student in mechanical engineering. He has deep experience that is rare for a student, even at the […]
At a center in Columbia, researchers from Clemson University and Palmetto Health are recording simulations of battlefield injuries as part of a $1.6-million project funded by the Department of Defense. The goal is to begin laying the groundwork for a hands-free system that would document battlefield injuries to improve medical care and ensure troops receive the benefits they are due.
More than 20 students gathered in Freeman Hall’s auditorium on Nov. 29 for LEAD Forward’s first commitment ceremony. Kyle Young was the speaker. LEAD Forward launched this year to prepare undergraduates in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences to be principled leaders professionally and personally. Those who complete the program receive a certificate […]
The 100th anniversary of chemical engineering at Clemson University was marked with a full day of events that began with a campus tour, included lively stories of years past and ended with an alumni dinner. David Bruce, chair of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, said the anniversary served as an opportunity to thank […]
Staff members in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences honored their colleagues and helped feed hungry students when they gathered Dec. 1 for an annual holiday luncheon in the Madren Conference Center. Awards went to outstanding classified employees for performance, achievements, or accomplishments that are exemplary and that contribute to the success of […]
Todd Schweisinger still lives in the house he bought for $60,000 when he was a Ph.D. student and drives the same 1988 minivan he’s had since he was a teen. It’s not that Schweisinger can’t afford a bigger house or a newer car. He makes a comfortable salary at Clemson University as a senior lecturer in mechanical engineering and undergraduate lab coordinator. Schweisinger shuns luxuries because they aren’t in line with his life goals. He has bigger plans, and donating $2 million to Clemson is at the top of his list.
Collin Braeuning went to his first meeting of The DEN for the free sub sandwiches and chicken tenders when he was a freshman. He stayed for the passion and now, two years later, serves as the program’s student leader. “These people were just so excited about the products and the companies they had made, and […]
Devin Keck is pursuing a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, but he also finds time to do some good outside the lab and classroom. The Charleston native is part of a team working to turn the recently closed Holly Springs Elementary School into a fully functioning community center. Keck’s role is to transform part of the […]
One of the hallmarks of the college experience is making new friends, but not everyone gets to do it in Tanzania. Carson Brewer is one of the fortunate few. The bioengineering major went to the East African nation for nearly seven weeks with two other students at the end of her sophomore year, and the […]
