Clemson’s College of Engineering and Science is known for a strong emphasis in collaborative research and career preparation.
Inspiration for the next big technological breakthrough in robotics, defense systems and biomedicine could come from a seahorse’s tail, according to a new study reported Thursday in the journal Science. The research centers on the curious shape of seahorse tails and was led by Clemson University’s Michael M. Porter, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering.
The Clemson University Concrete Canoe Team (3CT) placed first for the Final Product Award and fifth overall in the 2015 National Concrete Canoe Competition held on campus this week.
Utah Jazz power forward Trevor Booker told a room full of student entrepreneurs in the spring that he looked forward to hearing their business ideas and that he would help in any way he could.
This month’s spotlight illuminates someone who knows a lot about, well, lighting. Kevin Poyck (’92 EE) serves as Group President, Hubbell Lighting. In this role, he manages all brands, businesses, and functions within the company’s Lighting Group. Kevin has been leading engineering, product development, and operations teams for nearly 20 years with extensive expertise in global new product […]
New products ranging from airplane wings to devices that pump blood through the heart could make it to market faster thanks to the research that Leo Rebholz is doing at Clemson University. Rebholz, a professor of mathematical sciences, develops equations that describe how various systems behave. His work helps researchers develop more accurate and efficient […]
Drought and population booms have a growing number of communities taking a closer look at building desalination plants, but turning saltwater to freshwater is more expensive than many would like. Many researchers believe the magic bullet that lowers costs will be a high-strength membrane that can withstand the intense water pressure needed to desalinate water. […]
Clemson University will host the National Concrete Canoe Competition Saturday through Monday. The competition, held annually by the American Society of Civil Engineers, will have more than 20 student teams from across the country competing with concrete canoes they built during the academic year.
A Clemson University professor who has shown the rare combination of academic and industry achievement has won an honor that goes to only the most accomplished members in the world’s largest professional society for industrial engineers.
Eric Johnson of Clemson University put on a white “clean suit” that covered his body from head to toe, leaving little more than his eyes exposed. He stepped into a chamber and stood still as jets blasted him with air. Only when every effort had been made to remove the tiniest of particles from his suit did he open the lab door. Millions of dollars in highly sensitive equipment were at the ready. Johnson and his research group were there to make photonic and optoelectronic devices.
A Clemson Creative Inquiry team has created an Electronic Tongue, a unique, bioelectronic device that can emulate the process of “taste” performed by the human tongue.
Visitors to Greenville’s Artisphere festival earlier this month found plenty to spark their creativity in the Clemson University STEAM tent — from teaching robots how to draw and animated characters how to dance, to experimenting with light wavelengths on Skittles. Wait. What? That’s right, Skittles. Clemson’s innovative STEAM exhibits were educational and inspiring, but most […]
If you’ve been to the doctor, you probably know what to do when you’re handed a plastic cup and shown to the bathroom. Most patients hand over the sample and give little thought to what happens when it’s shipped to the lab for analysis. Ken Marcus and his students are the exceptions. They have developed a new testing method that they believe will reduce costs, get faster results and lower the volume of urine needed for a sample.
The Chicago Bulls won six championships in the 1990s, but the brilliance of Michael Jordan more than any other player drove the team to greatness. While it took an entire company of employees to create the iPad and iPhone, the vision of Steve Jobs pushed Apple to what it is today. It’s hard to overstate […]
Scores of students graduate from the College of Engineering and Science each year, but fewer than 1 percent go on to become members of the Thomas Green Clemson Academy of Engineers and Scientists. A special honor deserves a special occasion, so the college held a gala on April 30 to induct four new members: Imtiaz […]
Hybrid car owners may take great mileage for granted, but the cars’ batteries eventually wear out and need to be replaced, usually at a cost of several thousand dollars. The research that Simona Onori does at Clemson University can help those batteries last longer and could help find new ways to reuse them once they retire from the road.
