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.
Plants have helped cure disease and relieve pain since ancient times, and new research at Clemson University could help tap even more of their potential. Many plants hold promising pharmaceutical compounds but in quantities far too small to develop into marketable drugs. In some cases, the entire area of the United States could be farmed with a single crop and it would be enough to treat just a few patients.
An electrical engineer who sees big opportunities to commercialize technology in South Carolina and surrounding states is joining Clemson University as the new Warren H. Owen Distinguished Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
One might say Alejendra (Ale) Kennedy was destined to work for a university. She spent her formative years in Charlottesville, Virginia, where her father, Hernan Sabio, was a physician and professor at the University of Virginia. Her mother Elsa raised seven children, of which Kennedy was number three. She spent her youth playing on lawns […]
Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation is partnering with Clemson University to create a robotic solution for syringe-filling automation to enhance sterile manufacturing in the pharmaceutical production process and keep up with growing hospital demands.
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.
The faculty and staff working in Vickery Hall would like to welcome their colleagues from around campus to tour their transformed building and will host an Open House, August 19th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. It’s been less than two years since Undergraduate Studies took up residence in the former Student-Athlete Enrichment Services building, […]
Toxic chemicals that refuse to break down in the environment and have been linked to health problems could be treated with a technology that Ezra Cates is advancing at Clemson University. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, are man-made chemicals that have been used in a wide variety of commercial products, ranging from water-repellent fabrics […]
Hai Yao and Michael Kern were posing for a picture in a lab packed with microscopes, computers and other scientific equipment when the photographer asked, “How close are you?” Without hesitation, Kern threw an arm around Yao’s shoulders, and they beamed at the camera with the kind of familiarity that comes from working together for […]
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.
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 […]
