Clemson’s College of Engineering and Science is known for a strong emphasis in collaborative research and career preparation.
A professor who has studied PCB contamination in Hartwell Lake’s tributaries was named leader of Clemson University’s engineering and science education department. Cindy Lee has been serving as the department’s interim chair and now has the position permanently.
Shari Furman refuses to blend in with her surroundings and is an electrical engineering major with an interest in bioengineering — an ambitious combination that she chose simply because she didn’t want to limit herself to one discipline.
It has been 50 years since Bill Carter received his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Clemson University, but he has never forgotten the role his alma mater played in his life. “Clemson provided me with a great education,” Carter said. “I certainly wouldn’t be in the position that I am today if it weren’t […]
Nancy Bunch said that when she suffered a stroke, she lost the ability to lift one of her arms. The simplest of tasks, such as picking up a pencil, were but a memory. Then a therapist asked Bunch to try using a new video game, “Duck Duck Punch,” as part of her recovery. She punched […]
Clemson University plays host to more than 80 programs geared toward middle and high school students from June through mid-August.
A Clemson University researcher who is overseeing a $5.25-million research project has been appointed to a professorship that was named for the husband-and-wife team that played a central role in his graduate studies.
Leidy Klotz and his team have received $1 million from the National Science Foundation. The grant will fund research into how property owners, developers, engineers, public officials and other decision-makers choose whether to make infrastructure sustainable.
The Robert B. and Susan B. Hambright Annual Leadership Program in Engineering grants engineering students the ability to further their leadership skills and pursue opportunities that they would have never deemed possible.
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.

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.
