A Clemson University professor who is helping prepare the workforce for an industry that has brought more than 9,000 jobs to South Carolina in seven years is the newest Composites Educator of the Year. Srikanth Pilla, the Jenkins Endowed Professor of Automotive Engineering and founding director of the Clemson Composites Center, plans to pick up […]
Clemson University students, faculty and staff can now learn and innovate using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology alongside General Electric engineers in the new Additive Manufacturing Lab at GE Power’s Advanced Manufacturing Works facility. Unveiled at a ceremony with leaders and constituents from GE and Clemson Wednesday, the 1,000-square-foot space is Clemson’s first additive manufacturing lab housed at a corporate partner’s site.
New technology that was invented at Clemson University could help reduce the time and cost it takes to manufacture components that are composed of different materials and need to be joined together, researchers said. Even better, the process could be automated with the help of artificial intelligence, they said. Srikanth Pilla and Saeed Farahani are […]
Clemson University students are partnering with industry leaders to create sustainable solutions for the lifecycle of vehicles. Sponsored by ExxonMobil, graduate automotive engineering students in the university’s flagship Deep Orange program will develop a next-generation sustainable concept vehicle.
A skills gap that could leave as many as 2 million manufacturing jobs unfilled by 2025 is one of the driving forces behind a new Clemson University program that for the first time matches graduate students with technical college students on an assembly line built for research.
A boat that drives itself and picks up trash from the ocean? That’s the stuff of science fiction, but it's reality for a dozen lucky Upstate elementary, middle and high school students who are building their own autonomous boats in a Clemson University summer camp.
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.
Srikanth Pilla of Clemson University said that cost is the biggest barrier to using more composite materials in automotive manufacturing, but those materials could become more attractive if steel and aluminum prices rise in the wake of new tariffs.
A professor who is based in Greenville and plays a key role in supplying the automotive industry with engineers is bringing home an honor that goes to a small percentage of mechanical engineers. Beshah Ayalew, professor of automotive engineering at Clemson University, was elected a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, or ASME.
The world is at the cusp of one of the fastest, deepest, most consequential disruptions of transportation in history. And Clemson is supplying the engineers that will help get us there.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The TIGERS ADVANCE Distinguished Speaker Series, created to exhibit the extent of diversity among STEM scientists, has announced its lineup of speakers for the Spring 2018 semester. All talks will be held in the Watt Family Innovation Center auditorium. Robotic engineer Ayanna Howard – Feb. 20, 3-4:15 p.m. Ayanna Howard – […]
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.
Call it the real-life R2-D2. A robot that made its South Carolina debut in Greenville on Monday follows shoppers around a store, just as the lovable “Star Wars” droid followed Luke Skywalker around a galaxy far, far away.
Students at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) unveiled their newest Deep Orange concept vehicle, sponsored by the BMW Group. The 18-student team unveiled the fully-functional, drivable concept vehicle at the BMW Zentrum in Greer, South Carolina, on Saturday, Oct. 14.
Srikanth Pilla of Clemson University is receiving the Outstanding Young Scientist Award from the BioEnvironmental Polymer Society. Pilla, an assistant professor of automotive engineering, was set to accept the award at the society’s 24th annual meeting in Albany, California. His labs and offices are at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research in Greenville. […]
