After graduating from Clemson with a degree in civil engineering, Knowles took off to Sichuan Province, China, to teach English at the local high school and volunteer. Originally only planning to stay for one year, Knowles — now a lead actor in China’s highest-grossing ever action film — got talked into re-upping his trip, a decision that would prove to be life changing.
Research from Clemson University could help scientists, engineers and policymakers better understand drought, considered to be the world’s most widespread natural disaster. With the help of a prestigious CAREER award from the National Science Foundation, Ashok Mishra, an assistant professor of civil engineering, is building a computer model that will incorporate more factors than drought forecasters currently use and could help predict drought effects as long as six months before they are felt.
Brad Putman is the new interim associate dean for undergraduate studies in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. He is moving into the position formerly held by Karen High, who is returning to the faculty in the Department of Engineering and Science Education, where she will coordinate a major STEM faculty development initiative. […]
The non-fiction book and its film counterpart “Hidden Figures” revealed the genius behind the American space race in the 1960s: a cohort of black women who, despite segregation and discrimination, applied their genius in math and engineering to help send our rockets and astronauts into space and bring them back safely.
Mashrur "Ronnie" Chowdhury envisions a future in which car accidents will be reduced to virtually zero and drivers will travel down some of the state’s busiest roads without stopping for a single traffic light. It could begin to happen in as little as a decade, he said, with the help of a new center that will based out of Clemson University with $1.4 million in startup financing from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Clemson University Ph.D. candidate Shakira Hobbs of Baltimore, Maryland, has been named an Environmental Research & Education Foundation Scholar. Hobbs earned her Master of Science in engineering at Arizona State University in 2014.
One Research Drive, the sixth building in Technology Neighborhood I at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) campus, officially opened with a ribbon-cutting Tuesday.
A new graduate degree program that could help save lives and keep basic services running when disaster strikes is in development at Clemson University with $3 million in backing from the National Science Foundation.
Clemson graduate student engineers are part of a collaborative multidisciplinary team working with the people of a small rural village in Belize to provide “free” sustainable energy for the village by converting food waste into fuel for cooking. Shakira Hobbs, a PhD candidate in the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering, first visited Sittee River Village […]
Ashok Mishra of Clemson University is developing computer models that could help predict agricultural droughts and provide crucial information to farmers about how much water they will need to irrigate their crops. Mishra, an assistant professor in the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering, pulls together data from soil-moisture sensors, NASA satellites and weather observations to […]
When graduate student Shehzad Ziaee arrived in Clemson from his home in Hyderabad, India he was already a photography enthusiast but had never used a digital single-lens reflex (DLSR) camera before. On his first day in Clemson, he found himself in the library talking with library security coordinator, Walter Wilson. “Mr. Walter gave me some […]
Matt Doyle '16, a student from Connecticut, never dreamt of attending an out-of-state school. However, in 2012, Chuck '82 and Sue Fish made a commitment to establish an endowed fund, ultimately to provide engineering students from out-of-state with a great college experience. This commitment originated with the Chuck ’82 and Sue Fish Annual Engineering Scholarship, which they have been funding over a four-year period. Thanks to the couple's commitment, students like Matt Doyle can achieve goals they once thought weren’t possible.
Five Clemson University researchers have brought home some of the nation’s top awards for junior faculty members and are helping make robots fly, develop new medicines, save buildings from the wrecking ball and create new ways to make fertilizer.
Hurricanes blow the roofs off buildings and earthquakes shake them to piles of rubble, but nature’s wrath pales in comparison to the biggest threat that structures face. Nothing topples them quite like people, said Brandon Ross, an assistant professor of civil engineering at Clemson University. The buildings that took so much time, effort and expense […]
The College of Engineering and Science presented its Classified Staff Awards at its 2015 holiday luncheon. Outstanding employees were recognized for performance, achievements, or accomplishments that are exemplary and that contribute to the success of the college. The college expanded the award this year to honor two staff members, both of whom received the monetary […]
