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.
Jake Flynn’s dad was an All-American striker at Appalachian State, so soccer is part of his DNA. These days being a member of Clemson University’s Men’s Club Soccer provides a much-needed outlet from his class work and research as a senior in industrial engineering. “I work in the lab at Freeman Hall until about 7 […]
More than 300 freshmen engineering students had a chance March 27 to network with alumni from top companies in the Watt Family Innovation Center. This year’s Major Discovery Night drew 37 alumni from companies that included ExxonMobil, Michelin, Integrated Support Systems, AECOM, Fluor, and General Electric. The event is hosted annually by the General Engineering […]
MHI Vestas recently was awarded the Silver Medal in the category of renewable energy at the prestigious Edison Awards for its 9.5 megawatt offshore wind turbine, which it will test at Clemson University’s wind turbine-testing facility at the SCE&G Energy Innovation Center in the former naval shipyard.
Brandon Ross, an assistant professor of civil engineering at Clemson University, is among 23 professors from universities and colleges across the United States who will join the Jewish National Fund’s 2018 Summer Faculty Fellowship Program in Israel. Participants will travel throughout Israel, meeting Israeli professors from their respective disciplines with the same or similar research […]
Joshua Walters, who is pursuing a Ph.D. in bioengineering at Clemson University, recently learned his application to the South Carolina Space Grant Consortium has been selected for funding for a graduate assistantship in the amount of $12,000. The program awards assistantships for graduate study leading to research-based masters or doctoral degrees in the fields of […]
The Clemson Alumni Association will present Michael L. Watt of Kennesaw, Georgia, the 2018 Distinguished Service Award, the association’s highest honor. The award will be presented in Tillman Hall auditorium at Clemson University.
When Chris Paredis was a 9-year-old playing with Legos in his bedroom in Belgium he wasn’t thinking about becoming an engineer. “I just loved building things,” he said. Legos led to bikes and then cars and, as he explained, “literally anything with moving parts." Today, that fascination with making things work has led to the position he finds himself in today as the new BMW Endowed Chair in Systems Integration for Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
A team of Clemson researchers is using a $398,263 award from the National Science Foundation’s Broadening Participation in Engineering program to examine factors that both encourage and discourage Black students from pursuing education in engineering fields. Researchers will also examine how different academic pathways in engineering vary by gender and institution type for Black students.
Malcolm Williams doesn’t think he’s remarkable. “I don’t know what story you can write about me except that I’m here,” quipped the dapper 78-year-old during an interview in his modest apartment just off the Clemson University campus. Dressed in his typically stylish manner, with dress slacks, a button-up shirt and fine leather shoes, Williams certainly doesn’t look 78 and, as a college sophomore studying computer information systems, doesn’t act 78 either.
Thanks to Clemson University’s EUREKA! program, two Clemson alumni had their fair share of “ah-ha” moments, and arguably one of their most memorable, when they realized they were in love.
One of the nation’s top honors for graduate students is going to two Clemson University engineers, putting them in the same club as at least eight Nobel Prize winners. Mark Anayee and Aniqa Chowdhury are receiving Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation. The nationally competitive program recruits high-potential, early-career scientists and engineers and […]
Six Clemson students traveled to Boston College last week to participate in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Meeting of the Minds. The conference is held annually every spring to celebrate undergraduate research and provides an opportunity for sharing of ideas and collaboration.
Gov. Henry McMaster is honoring a Clemson University researcher who has quickly become a leader in the technology behind composite materials, part of a fast-growing industry that has brought South Carolina thousands of new jobs and investment in the billions of dollars. Srikanth Pilla, the Jenkins Professor of Automotive Engineering and dean’s faculty fellow, is this year’s recipient of the Young Scientist Award for Excellence in Scientific Research.
Several of the college’s top students were honored in April at an awards ceremony in the Madren Conference Center. The honors went to students who were outstanding in several areas, including academics, character, leadership and research. A list of the awards, their winners, hometowns and majors are as follows: […]
Improved brain injury diagnoses and approaches to knee surgery are among the sports research projects that have received a boost thanks to seed grants from the Robert H. Brooks Sports Science Institute at Clemson University.
