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.
Two leaders are bringing a wealth of experience in higher education and energy research to their new roles at Clemson University’s innovation campus on the banks of the Cooper River near Charleston.
Fitness fanatics use pedometers to count their steps and stay motivated, but some have questioned the accuracy of their devices. Without counting each footfall, it can be tough for the average user to know whether the readout saying 10,000 steps should have been more like 9,000 or 11,000. New research at Clemson University could help […]
As a highly regarded professional in the world of electrical engineering research and teaching, Kumar Venayagamoorthy isn’t short on degrees. But the Duke Energy Distinguished Professor of Power Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering thinks the one he will receive at Friday’s summer commencement may be a career game-changer for him, and […]
To meet the growing demand for engineers with knowledge in energy-related fields, Clemson University now offers a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering with an emphasis in power engineering at the Lowcountry Graduate Center.
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 […]
Shari Furman refuses to blend in with her surroundings and is an electrical engineering major with an interest in bioengineering — an ambitious combination that she chose simply because she didn’t want to limit herself to one discipline.
Eric Johnson of Clemson University put on a white “clean suit” that covered his body from head to toe, leaving little more than his eyes exposed. He stepped into a chamber and stood still as jets blasted him with air. Only when every effort had been made to remove the tiniest of particles from his suit did he open the lab door. Millions of dollars in highly sensitive equipment were at the ready. Johnson and his research group were there to make photonic and optoelectronic devices.
At the spring faculty meeting, Clemson University honors outstanding faculty and those who have achieved emeritus status. This year the College of Engineering and Science had two awardees and seven emeriti faculty. The Centennial Professorship Award was presented by Robert Jones, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. The award went to Richard Figliola, […]
