Clemson University’s National Merit Scholars will span from Clemson to Cleveland with some pursuing secondary degrees while others dive into the workforce.
Three Clemson students have received prestigious academic awards this year: the Fulbright Scholarship, the Boren Fellowship and the Boren Scholarship. These programs will give Sloan Nietert, Irene Cheng and Justin Giles the opportunity to study and live abroad and expand their academic excellence.
Malcolm Williams doesn’t think he’s remarkable. “I don’t know what story you can write about me except that I’m here,” quipped the dapper 78-year-old during an interview in his modest apartment just off the Clemson University campus. Dressed in his typically stylish manner, with dress slacks, a button-up shirt and fine leather shoes, Williams certainly doesn’t look 78 and, as a college sophomore studying computer information systems, doesn’t act 78 either.
CLEMSON — Miriam Lozneanu extended her cane, signed to her interpreter and headed out the door of the Hendrix Student Center. She went down the steps and crossed the street by herself without a stumble or hesitation. Lozneanu, who is legally blind and partially deaf, is a 23-year-old computer science major at Clemson University. With […]
This Tiger came to Clemson as a graduate student and never left because she loves the environment, teaching and seeing "that light go on" in her students. Learn how she accomplished her goal and made history in the process.
Clemson faculty researchers are using a near $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to help computer science teachers across South Carolina develop teaching methods that better serve the state’s diverse population. The research aims to broaden participation in computer science by improving teaching methods and discovering what does and doesn’t work in computer science classrooms for different student audiences.
Madison Maddox thrives on caffeine, late-night brainstorming sessions, and the triumphant moments when hard-fought goals are achieved. The junior computer science major and Calhoun Honors College student from Beaufort, South Carolina, says her biggest challenge is prioritizing time management while navigating a schedule packed with academic and extracurricular activities. But if these are the best […]
Fundamental research processes that once took days or weeks to perform will now be done in minutes or hours with new equipment at Clemson University that could accelerate the development of medicines, advanced materials and other technologies.
For the second year in a row, seven Clemson researchers received CAREER awards from the National Science Foundation. They will tackle issues from creating realistic hand and finger movements for virtual reality to redesigning the way clinical trials are carried out.
All kinds of data from government secrets to credit card numbers are vulnerable to computer hacking, but new defenses could be on the way with the help of a nationwide team of security experts, including a Clemson University assistant professor.
A graduate of a Clemson University program that prepares students for work in the visual-effects industry was part of a four-person team that won an award for its work on the Disney animated film “Moana.” Marc Henry Bryant was on a team that won a Visual Effects Society award for “Outstanding Effects Simulations in an […]
A Clemson University assistant professor who led the development of a new breed of firewall will have a chance to present the research he and his team did to some of the world’s top cybersecurity experts. Hongxin Hu’s technical paper was recently accepted by the 24th Network and Distributed System Security Symposium, also known as […]
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 […]
A Clemson University student team won the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society’s Mobile Health Applications for Consumers design competition. Cheng Guo, a Ph.D. student in human-centered computing, and Spencer Kohn, a Clemson graduate who now is pursing a master’s degree at George Mason University, designed a mobile application aimed to help enhance patient privacy when sharing health records.
Researchers have long believed that supercomputers give universities a competitive edge in scientific research, but now they have some hard data showing it’s true.
