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.
Cars that go more than 1,000 miles on a single fill-up and smartphones that can run for days without recharging are among the possibilities that could come out of a new Clemson University research project that brings together 3D printing and laser processing.
One of the toughest challenges in engineering is coming sharply into focus as a group of professors begins fanning out across the South to recruit doctoral students to Clemson University. The group, led by Mark Blenner, is working to increase diversity in engineering. The low numbers are a nationwide concern and leave behind large swaths of the population, cutting them out of jobs that pay well above the national average.
Clemson University bioengineers are launching a new research project to better understand cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes, an affliction that affects about 13 percent of South Carolina adults and cost $4.3 billion last year alone. What the bioengineers learn could help lay the groundwork for future studies aimed at finding new treatments.

The late Bert Henderson had a suggestion for Ken Smith about 25 years ago, when he was beginning to consider how he could give back to his alma mater, Clemson University. “Just start, give what you can now and grow it from there,” said Henderson, who was associate athletic director and director of IPTAY Planned […]
Chip Hood is among the few who can say they have earned degrees from all three of South Carolina’s major research universities. He received a bachelor of science in electrical engineering from Clemson University and then went to Medical University of South Carolina for a master’s in biomedical science. He continued his education at the […]
In between visits with Vietnam’s prime minister and Indonesia’s energy minister, Raymond Jones recently made time for his alma mater, Clemson University. Jones travels the world as a vice president with ExxonMobilProduction Company, but his roots will forever remain in the Upstate of South Carolina. Jones graduated from Clemson with a Bachelor of Science in […]
Martine LaBerge of Clemson University is one of the newest Fellows in the Biomedical Engineering Society, an honor recognizing her for exceptional achievements and experience in biomedical engineering. LaBerge is chair of the Department of Bioengineering at Clemson and executive director of the Clemson University Biomedical Engineering Innovation Campus, or CUBEInC, in Greenville. She is […]
A study of the effectiveness of a Clemson-developed smartphone app for people with intellectual disabilities has yielded impressive results. The app, Task Analysis Lite, assists users in the completion of everyday tasks for home and work. Clemson’s study of the app found large gains in the performance of task completion once the app was incorporated. The app was developed through an interdisciplinary partnership between Clemson’s school of computing and ClemsonLIFE, a program that provides postsecondary education for students with intellectual disabilities.
Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness (CNTA) is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2018 Fred C. Davidson Distinguished Scientist Award is Brian A. Powell, the Fjeld Professor of Nuclear Environmental Engineering and Earth Science at Clemson University. The prestigious award was presented at the recent Edward Teller Lecture in Aiken. CNTA sponsors the […]
A customizable, hands-on virtual reality and advanced display system is under development at Clemson University that could change how scientists across the country share information and collaborate, as well as how students learn. The project is one of two grants recently awarded by the National Science Foundation’s Major Research Instrumentation program (MRI). An MRI grant awarded to environmental researcher Thomas O’Halloran funds the acquisition of a soil greenhouse gas flux measuring system that will help scientists better understand the release of harmful greenhouse gases from the soil to the atmosphere.
Amod Ogale of Clemson University was inducted as a Fellow by the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) in an awards ceremony held in Dallas on Oct. 15, 2018. Ogale is the Dow Chemical Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the Director of the Center for Advanced […]
The family and friends of a former Clemson University dean are remembering him as an “engineer at heart” whose influence reached the heights of academia and industry and far into the solar system.
Visitors strolling through the halls of the 2018 Clemson Brick Forum could be forgiven if for a moment they thought they were in a European capital. Conversations were going on in German, Italian and Dutch, among others. “In recent years the forum has seen a growing international presence,” said John Sanders, director of Clemson University’s […]
