Cyberattacks with the potential to expose sensitive information and cripple basic services could start with what would seem to be the most harmless of computer functions. Timekeeping. It’s a vulnerability that has raised growing concerns as more homes, businesses, utilities and other critical services rely on the internet and GPS to function, and each week […]
At a center in Columbia, researchers from Clemson University and Palmetto Health are recording simulations of battlefield injuries as part of a $1.6-million project funded by the Department of Defense. The goal is to begin laying the groundwork for a hands-free system that would document battlefield injuries to improve medical care and ensure troops receive the benefits they are due.
Staff members in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences honored their colleagues and helped feed hungry students when they gathered Dec. 1 for an annual holiday luncheon in the Madren Conference Center. Awards went to outstanding classified employees for performance, achievements, or accomplishments that are exemplary and that contribute to the success of […]
Nelson Willhite returned to Clemson University for the first time in nearly 20 years to announce that he is establishing a $100,000 endowment in the name of his former graduate advisor, John Gowdy. The Dr. John N. Gowdy Endowed Fellowship supports South Carolina residents studying in the Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Willhite, […]
Clemson University professors Kristin Scott, Jeff Anker and Goutam Koley have been accepted as the newest Clemson University School of Health Research (CUSHR) and Greenville Health System Faculty Fellows. Faculty Fellows are tenured faculty members who are embedded in a Greenville Health System (GHS) department for a semester and summer to produce health-related research. Through […]
Clemson University is part of a team that is receiving $10 million from the National Science Foundation to help build what experts call a “cloud computing system,” bringing the total funding to $20 million since 2014.
A computer- and network-security expert who has been called a role model for women in STEM disciplines is the winner of an award that each year recognizes an outstanding postdoctoral fellow at Clemson University. Lu Yu, of the Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is receiving the Clemson University Postdoctoral Award. It recognizes outstanding […]
The historic eclipse that will cut across the nation on Aug. 21 will give Clemson University researchers and industry collaborators a chance to study what happens when solar panels suddenly quit generating energy.
The rebels and the empire used laser cannons to shoot it out on the big screen in “Star Wars,” but the weapons could soon move to the real battlefield with the help of two Clemson University engineers who are receiving a combined $3.2 million from the Department of Defense.
Guneet Bedi, doctoral student in the Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), has been invited to present at the International Student Energy Summit (SES), which will take place in Merida, Mexico June 13-17, 2017. The SES brings together 800 chosen delegates from 120 countries, and hails as the most globally diverse event for […]
Lin Zhu is receiving $1.4 million from the Department of Defense to address one of the central factors that keep diode lasers from becoming efficient, high-energy weapons. Zhu, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, said his goal is to produce a light beam that has high power but that also goes in one […]
Clemson scientists Alex Feltus and Melissa Smith have received a $2.95 million NSF award to develop cyberinfrastructure aimed at providing researchers around the nation and world with a more fluid and flexible system of analyzing large-scale data.
Mindy and Megan Earnest are fraternal twins who could easily pass for identical. Both are engineering majors in the Calhoun Honors College and active in Tiger Band. It’s easy to see how people get them confused — just ask some of the people who have mistakenly had a conversation with one sister expecting her to […]
Hubbell Lighting Inc., a world leader in lighting innovation, and the Hubbell Foundation have pledged $250,000 to Clemson University to establish the Hubbell Foundation Engineering Scholarship Endowment.
