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.
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 […]
Radiation often gets a bad rap, but bioengineer Delphine Dean is studying how low doses of radiation could be used to kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells. A recent study, published in PLOS ONE, describes how Dean’s team used a novel x-ray florescence irradiation system to help identify the right energy and dosage to use.
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 […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson famously played in a 2014 game with a torn ACL. This season, he was burning up the NFL record book when the ACL in his other knee snapped, ending his season and breaking the hearts of tens of thousands of fans. The former Clemson University star […]
As 2017 comes to an end, let’s take a moment to reflect on the many ways Clemson continues to make its mark as a leader in education, innovative research and athletics.
The Clemson Caribbean Initiative (CCI) has awarded five interdisciplinary seed grants totaling $50,000 to teams of Clemson faculty to help advance their research and scholarship, teaching and service in the Caribbean region.
Clemson University will award degrees to more than 1,300 students in Littlejohn Coliseum on Thursday, Dec. 21. Undergraduates, master's and doctoral graduates from each college will receive their degrees during one of two ceremonies.
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 […]
Bridging the gap between today’s gas-fueled cars and powerful, hybrid vehicles of the future is a major challenge in the automotive industry. At Clemson University, however, an automotive engineering student program aims to do just that. For the Deep Orange 9 program at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR), students are building a first-ever, high-performance, ultra-tough motorsports vehicle with a clean, fuel-efficient hybrid powertrain, advanced technical features and highly dynamic handling and acceleration.
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 […]
Samsung Electronics America Friday announced a new research and development partnership with the state of South Carolina and its two largest universities, Clemson University and the University of South Carolina. Together with the state government, Samsung will create the Palmetto Consortium for Home Appliance Innovation [PCHAI], a robust R&D program designed to catalyze innovation, foster public/private collaboration, and nurture the next generation of advanced manufacturing professionals in South Carolina.
