High-performance research computing at Clemson is discovering answers to complex issues we didn’t even know existed a decade ago. The workhorse behind much of that problem-solving is one of the planet’s largest supercomputers: the Palmetto Cluster — at home in Clemson and at work in the world.
Some of the best and brightest students in the Clemson University College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences were lauded Thursday in an awards ceremony at the Madren Conference Center. Family, friends and faculty members clapped for students as they accepted Tiger paw-emblazoned plaques and then posed for photos with the college’s dean, Anand Gramopadhye. […]
Rajendra Singh of Clemson University received a 2019 Hind Rattan Award, an honor that goes to natives of India who are now living elsewhere. Singh, the D. Houser Banks Professor of Electrical Engineering, accepted the award in a Jan. 25 ceremony in New Delhi. The award was presented by Bibek Debroy, chairman of the Economic […]
The Clemson University Research Foundation (CURF) has announced seven researchers will receive Technology Maturation Fund grants to support the last critical step in technology development. The projects supported by this fund include prototype and minimal viable product development, bench-to-scale-up activities to generate material samples for application testing, beta field testing and pre-clinical studies.
Lin Zhu, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Clemson University, is co-principal investigator on a recent grant from the National Science Foundation. The title of the project is “RAISE-EQuIP: A high-speed, reconfigurable, fully integrated circuit platform for quantum photonic applications.” The award is for $750,000. Qiang Lin serves as principal investigator, and […]
Chip Hood is among the few who can say they have earned degrees from all three of South Carolina’s major research universities. He received a bachelor of science in electrical engineering from Clemson University and then went to Medical University of South Carolina for a master’s in biomedical science. He continued his education at the […]
A Clemson University graduate has returned to his alma mater as one of the nation’s few professors to specialize in protecting the electrical grid and other power systems from disturbances that can lead to blackouts. Sukumar Brahma, who received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Clemson in 2003, is the new SCE&G Distinguished Professor of […]
An accomplished scholar whose research is advancing cybersecurity in a world of growing threats was installed Aug. 20 as the C. Tycho Howle Chair in Collaborative Computing Environments at Clemson University. Sally A. McKee was honored during convocation at Littlejohn Coliseum.
Harold Gillens remembers showing up to Clemson University one year with money for tuition but none for housing or meals. He and a friend with the same problem went into the housing office to see what they could work out. A woman offered them jobs as resident assistants, thinking they already had a place to […]
Richard Brooks of Clemson University is using the same technology that underpins bitcoin to create a new way of securing data in clinical trials, a project that could make pharmaceuticals safer and cheaper to bring to market. The technology, blockchain, creates a public ledger of data entries that cannot be modified after the fact and […]
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, […]
