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.
Emily Peek arrived at Clemson as a math major in 1968 – one of the few Clemson women entering the field of science, technology, engineering and math at that time. “As a female math major in the late 1960s, I definitely stood out,” says Emily. She credits her teachers in high school and those at […]
A conference in Greenville on Feb. 22 will provide a behind-the-scenes look into the research that could soon transform health care, ranging from new ways to treat disease to better ways of working with patients. The 3rd Annual Harriet and Jerry Dempsey Research Conference runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will be in […]
Kai He, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering, recently had some research published in the journal Advanced Materials. The title of the paper is “Lithium-Ion Batteries: Atomic-Scale Observation of Electrochemically Reversible Phase Transformations in SnSe2 Single Crystals.” The research could help lead to batteries that charge faster, hold their charge longer and have […]
Amir Poursaee of Clemson University was selected for the Humboldt Research Fellowship for Experienced Researchers in recognition of his scientific work. The fellowship will allow him to carry out one year of research with the corrosion group at the Max-Planck Institute for Iron Research in Dusseldorf, Germany, where his host will be Michael Rohwerder. The […]
When Clemson takes on Notre Dame in the 2018 Cotton Bowl, a berth in the national championship game will be at stake. But on the universities’ respective campuses, teams of researchers are working together – Tiger and Fighting Irish – to tackle some heavy-hitting science and societal issues. Here, we present three collaborations that transcend the gridiron.
Scott Husson of Clemson University is the first recipient of a professorship named for Bill and Martha Beth Sturgis, who made history earlier this year by giving the biggest donation ever to the department of chemical and biomolecular engineering.
You’ll have to forgive Madeline Cordell if she seems a little anxious for Thursday’s 9:30 a.m. commencement at Clemson University. After all, the graduating senior has had a close brush with embarrassment before. “I almost took out the principal at my high school graduation,” she laughed. “I always seem to trip when I’m on stage. My family’s waiting to see what will happen. Maybe I’ll wear flip flops instead of heels.”
This Tiger implements new ways of learning to prepare his students for the future. His innovative research helps him develop materials for new generations. Meet Marek Urban. Title: J.E. Sirrine Foundation endowed chair, professor of materials science and engineering and professor of chemistry Years at Clemson: Six years What I do at Clemson: My primary responsibilities […]
Whether it was U.S. News & World Report naming Clemson a top-25 public institution for the 11th consecutive year, the groundbreaking discovery of all the starlight ever produced or announcing workforce development initiatives around the state, this year has been full of achievements for this university thanks to the hard work of our faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends.
Engineering students around the world could find new opportunities to study and work abroad as part of an exchange program that serves more than 250 students from 24 countries each year and counts Randy Collins of Clemson University as one of its key leaders.
For the second year in a row, seven Clemson University faculty members received 2018 National Science Foundation Early Faculty Career Development Awards, one of the most prestigious awards to young faculty. From adapting the art of Japanese origami to structural engineering to predicting the earth’s response to space storms, these Clemson assistant professors apply their […]
A professor who is regarded as one of the world’s leading authorities in engineering education and whose influence has extended from a Greenville arts festival to workshops as far away as Indonesia is winning this year’s Class of ‘39 Award for Excellence. Lisa Benson has developed several programs that have become integral to the Clemson […]
Staff members from Clemson University’s largest college collected canned food for hungry students, honored four of their colleagues and celebrated a community service project when they gathered Dec. 6 in the Madren Conference Center for their holiday party. For the second year, staff members in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences used the […]
Clemson University students are partnering with industry leaders to create sustainable solutions for the lifecycle of vehicles. Sponsored by ExxonMobil, graduate automotive engineering students in the university’s flagship Deep Orange program will develop a next-generation sustainable concept vehicle.
Walter Lee said a running joke started when he attended a program at Clemson University during one of his summers off from Goose Creek High School. “You skipped basketball camp to go to a science camp at Clemson?” he remembers his friends asking incredulously. He did, and the decision helped set him on a path […]
