The College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences educates, creates and disseminates new knowledge, engages students in critical thinking and inspires the cutting-edge innovations of tomorrow.
As Oscar Wilde famously penned, “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” Professor J.C. “Mike” Hubbard was without doubt a man who truly lived a life that overflowed with achievement, kindness and dedication. As a lifelong educator, his academic journey began at Clemson University as a student […]
Astronauts on deep-space missions won’t be able to run to the store for disinfectant wipes, but they may have another way of cleaning surfaces inside their spaceship, and it could involve human waste. Sudeep Popat of Clemson University is developing a way of making hydrogen peroxide for use on long-term space missions. He proposes to do it by feeding human waste to microbial fuel cells that produce hydrogen peroxide.
Among the many students attending classes on Clemson’s main campus this summer are 140 incoming freshmen – part of a new and innovative program called Tigertown Summer Bound (TTSB). An example of collaboration across the University, this initiative was developed by the Undergraduate Studies Office and the Office of Admissions, with many other offices actively […]
South Carolina-based global electronic components company AVX Corporation will fuel the next chapter of Clemson University's flagship vehicle prototype program Deep Orange with new equipment and lab space at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research.
As the only academic facility in the U.S. with industrial-scale capabilities to fabricate optical fiber, the Clemson University Center for Optical Materials Science and Engineering Technologies (COMSET) is making significant impacts in the fiber-optic industry. Now, the center’s receiving its second SG Controls MCVD lathe through an in-kind gift from Molex LLC, further positioning COMSET as one of the premiere fiber-optics facilities in the world.
Four Clemson University researchers are bringing home some of the nation’s top awards for junior faculty members, an honor that comes with new opportunities to advance technology that could lead to a more sustainable environment, robotic cars and a faster, more-secure internet.
Allowing a self-driving car to do the driving may sound like a good idea when you’re stuck in traffic, but actually taking your hands off the steering wheel is another thing entirely. The discomfort that many people feel in turning over work to autonomous cars and robots in manufacturing is inspiring new research led by […]
Hongxin Hu of Clemson University is developing new security functions to protect computer networks from attacks, as each day brings another round of news about hackers exposing sensitive data. The new security functions include a virtual intrusion detection system that would detect attacks and a virtual firewall system that would repel them. A $500,000 CAREER […]
Eric Davis of Clemson University is joining the quest to create a battery that would help utilities introduce more renewable energy to the electrical grid and reduce the amount of fossil fuel that needs to be burned. Davis, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, has launched a new research project with the help of a […]
The tiny devices that have already revolutionized how people send data over the internet, whether it’s an Instagram post or an email, could become even smaller and more efficient with help of research led by Clemson University’s Judson Ryckman. Ryckman, an assistant professor of electrical engineering, is working to create smaller and more efficient photonic […]
A Clemson University associate professor whose research could help enable long-term space missions and search for some of the globe’s most destructive weapons is receiving the U.S. government’s highest honor for early-career scientists and engineers.
If she hadn't been injured in a naval accident, Melissa McCullough may never have found the purpose she has at Clemson University. McCullough is pursuing her Ph.D. in bioengineering under the guidance of Delphine Dean while teaching and working full-time as the bioinstrumentation lab manager.
Clemson University and Duke Energy are hitting the road this summer behind the wheel of the Explore Mobile Lab, an innovative approach to educating middle school students across the Palmetto State about the critical and growing field of engineering. This creative partnership between the University and Duke Energy is unique to South Carolina, and the program hopes to educate and engage young scientists and engineers who will be the future workforce for industries such as electric utilities that will need those skills to power communities in the 21st century.
Jodi Cox has joined the staff of the Graduate School as the director of graduate training and mentoring. In this role, Cox will direct and manage programs and services for GRAD 360°, the Graduate School’s comprehensive professional development program for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. Cox will be responsible for developing new weekly training opportunities for graduate students […]
Graduate students are researching some of society’s most pressing challenges and learning to collaborate across disciplines in two separate programs that have positioned Clemson University at the forefront of a nationwide effort to transform STEM graduate education. One of the programs is led by Cole Smith, associate provost for academic initiatives, and one is led […]
