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.
Fundamental research processes that once took days or weeks to perform will now be done in minutes or hours with new equipment at Clemson University that could accelerate the development of medicines, advanced materials and other technologies.
A 3.1-mile run that brings together the Clemson University community each fall to promote fun, fitness and fellowship will return Nov. 4 to the South Carolina Botanical Garden.
Julie Martin of Clemson University is serving as program director for engineering education at the National Science Foundation, giving her a nationwide leadership role in creating the next generation of engineers. Martin is based out of the foundation’s headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia but remains associate professor of engineering and science education at Clemson and expects […]
A Clemson University program received an award from a national organization whose mission is to produce a diverse pool of engineers and scientists and to help America maintain its competitive edge. PEER received the 2017 NAMEPA Retention Program Award from the National Association of Multicultural Engineering Programs. The award honors retention programs that have increased […]
In its fall quarterly meeting on campus, Clemson University’s board of trustees approved four new master of arts teacher residency programs, funding for several recreation capital projects, modified pricing for six programs and construction of a new composite center.
A $1-million upgrade to Clemson University’s acclaimed supercomputer, the Palmetto Cluster, is expected to help researchers quicken the pace of scientific discovery and technological innovation in a broad range of fields, from developing new medicines to creating advanced materials.
Heart-attack damage could be repaired with stem cells and tiny “nanowires” as part of a new research project that involves all three of South Carolina’s major research universities and is backed by $1.5 million from the National Institutes of Health. Ying Mei, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Clemson University, is leading the project.
They say kids have engines that never stop, so it seems fitting that on Tuesday, more than 200 Upstate middle and high schoolers will get to see real-life race cars and hear from drivers and engineers at the Acura/Honda STEAM Connections Tour at Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research.
The enduring importance of nuclear energy in South Carolina is underscored by two new grants that together total more than $1 million and bring Clemson University’s five-year tally to $3.9 million under a federal program that supports university research in the field.
Srikanth Pilla of Clemson University is receiving the Outstanding Young Scientist Award from the BioEnvironmental Polymer Society. Pilla, an assistant professor of automotive engineering, was set to accept the award at the society’s 24th annual meeting in Albany, California. His labs and offices are at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research in Greenville. […]
Twenty-three researchers from across the state are coming together to learn more about why students make it through calculus on their way to an engineering degree and why others falter and abandon engineering altogether.
Sue Lasser remembers when Tillman Hall was “packed to the rafters” to memorialize Miranda White, who died less than a year after graduating from Clemson University with a degree in chemistry. “She was loved,” said Lasser, the former director of PEER. “She was a warm and engaging and caring and funny and bright personality. She […]
Clemson University has participated in a yearlong process with the Atlantic Coast Conference, partner ACC universities, and the Smithsonian Institution to create the first “ACCelerate: ACC Smithsonian Creativity and Innovation Festival.” The university will have three research projects on display in D.C. Oct. 13-15.
South Carolina’s position as a national leader in advanced materials just got a giant boost. A team of researchers from 10 universities across the state has received a $20 million, five-year grant from the National Science Foundation’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) to establish a new initiative: Materials Assembly and Design Excellence in South Carolina, or MADE in SC.
In a nondescript industrial steel building not far from Clemson University's main campus, civil engineers fire two-by-four lumber out of an air cannon and test model buildings in a 50-mph wind tunnel to study the damaging effects of high-speed winds, like those created by tornadoes and by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
