The same technology that adds a sense of realism to video games will soon help teach students across the country about robotics in advanced manufacturing, starting in Greenville. Virtual reality is the centerpiece of a new program, TIME for Robotics, that will be created at the Clemson University Center for Workforce Development.
Building with wood has a number of advantages. For the past five years, Clemson University’s Wood Utilization + Design Institute (WU+D) has been educating individuals in the Southeast about these benefits, including the fact wood takes less energy to produce than most other building materials, giving it a lower carbon footprint.
Clemson fans celebrated in March when the men’s basketball team made the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in 21 years. A group of Tigers has made the Sweet Sixteen again, except this time it was in the lab instead of on the basketball court. A team from Clemson University’s Glenn Department of Civil Engineering […]
Douglas (DJ) and Meredith Edmonson met and fell in love while both were pursuing degrees in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. The couple now lives in California where DJ is a software engineer at Apple, and Meredith is an independent contractor. Just five years ago, DJ was a Clemson student — competing […]
The beginning of hurricane season on Friday brings a sharp reminder that tens of millions of coastal residents could be called to grab their loved ones and flee inland for safety. The enormous strain on the transportation system and the many decisions that must be made as the storms churn toward the coast are central to the research Pamela Murray-Tuite is conducting at Clemson University.
In the spring of 2017, Clemson’s Wood Utilization + Design (WU+D) Institute, along with the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering, School of Architecture, Department of Construction Science and Management, and Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation, was presented with an opportunity to share an existing 12,000-foot, high bay facility in Pendleton, SC. This space will […]
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 […]
James R. Martin left South Carolina in 1985 to pursue his master’s degree in civil engineering at Virginia Tech. When he returned to his home state 18 years later, he made Clemson University history. Martin, who grew up in Union and graduated from The Citadel, became chair of Clemson’s Glenn Department of Civil Engineering in […]
Clemson University professor Sez Atamturktur has been accepted into a national leadership institute focused on the advancement of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
If you’re in the right place at the right time, you might catch Gerald Glenn in a certain blue blazer – the one lined in orange that has a tiger paw on the inside. And if you’re lucky, you just might catch him laughing and asking, “Can you tell Clemson is close to my heart?”
This Tiger’s grandfather was pivotal in her decision to study and graduate with an engineering degree from Clemson. Today, she collaborates with architects, contractors and inspectors to ensure a seamless process from concept to construction to completion of the university’s Capital Projects. While her role typically involves building structures, her current project, the Dec. 3 […]
The fledgling U.S. Air Force careers of brothers Cameron and Evan Dunker are off to a flying start. The “socially identical” but biologically fraternal twin brothers from Aiken, S.C., were recently awarded slots in undergraduate pilot training when they graduate next May from Clemson University’s Air Force ROTC program as second lieutenants. The 23-year-olds were […]
In a nondescript industrial steel building not far from Clemson University's main campus, civil engineers fire two-by-four lumber out of an air cannon and test model buildings in a 50-mph wind tunnel to study the damaging effects of high-speed winds, like those created by tornadoes and by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
Clemson University alumnus C. Joel Sprague has received ASTM International’s top annual award. Sprague, who received his Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Clemson, is senior engineer and southeast region manager with TRI/Environmental in Greenville. He previously held positions with Sprague & Sprague Consulting Engineers, Nicolon Corp., Hoechst Celanese Corp., and Duke Power Co. […]
Clemson University scientists have received a federal grant to evaluate the effectiveness of producing biofuels to mitigate climate change. Quantifying the net impact that growing biomass feedstock for biofuel has on local temperature and carbon sequestration can aid the development of effective land-use policies and is the key of a new research project led by Clemson University scientist Thomas O’Halloran.
