An electrical engineer who sees big opportunities to commercialize technology in South Carolina and surrounding states is joining Clemson University as the new Warren H. Owen Distinguished Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Four Clemson University researchers are bringing home some of the nation’s top awards for junior faculty members, an honor that comes with new opportunities to advance technology that could lead to a more sustainable environment, robotic cars and a faster, more-secure internet.
The tiny devices that have already revolutionized how people send data over the internet, whether it’s an Instagram post or an email, could become even smaller and more efficient with help of research led by Clemson University’s Judson Ryckman. Ryckman, an assistant professor of electrical engineering, is working to create smaller and more efficient photonic […]
Imagine if the Clemson Tigers played for national championships in football and basketball in the same week, or maybe even the same day. That’s what the excitement level will be like next week for several Clemson University students who plan to blast a rocket about 30,000 feet above the New Mexico desert while closely watching a separate launch on the Virginia coast that will shoot their robotic tentacle into space.
Charleston’s technology industry is growing like sea oats on a sand dune and could soon sprout fresh sprigs as Clemson University plants the seeds for new cybersecurity initiatives at its campus overlooking the Cooper River. Two faculty members, Harlan Russell and Kelly Caine, are relocating to the Charleston area for a year to take the lead in creating the initiatives, which will be offered at the Zucker Family Graduate Education Center in North Charleston.
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 […]
