As a child in East Asia, he loved Origami. Today, he uses it as part of his research. Folding paper into complex shapes helps researchers use the principles of geometry to envision new materials and structures. Meet Suyi Li. Title: Assistant professor Years at Clemson: 3 What I do at Clemson: Being a teacher, my role […]
In the spring of 2017, Clemson’s Wood Utilization + Design (WU+D) Institute, along with the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering, School of Architecture, Department of Construction Science and Management, and Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation, was presented with an opportunity to share an existing 12,000-foot, high bay facility in Pendleton, SC. This space will […]
Automotive experts say today’s smart vehicles are generating upwards of one gigabyte of information every second. So the question is: How do you collect all that data and what do you do with it? This is at the heart of the inaugural SAE Automated and Connected Vehicle Systems Testing Symposium, which will be held at Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) on June 20-21.
Galen Helfter sits in front of two giant computer monitors in his corner office on the 14th floor of Cascade Plaza in Akron, Ohio. The 24-year-old looks out over the landscape and manages a basic, yet succinct summary of his surroundings: “I seriously can’t believe this is my office.” Next month, Helfter and four others will become the first graduates of the Zucker Family Graduate Education Center, part of Clemson University’s Restoration Institute innovation campus in North Charleston.
When Chris Paredis was a 9-year-old playing with Legos in his bedroom in Belgium he wasn’t thinking about becoming an engineer. “I just loved building things,” he said. Legos led to bikes and then cars and, as he explained, “literally anything with moving parts." Today, that fascination with making things work has led to the position he finds himself in today as the new BMW Endowed Chair in Systems Integration for Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
Ford Motor Company will sponsor the 10th generation Deep Orange vehicle prototype designed and conceived by automotive engineering students at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
J. Cole Smith, the chair of the industrial engineering department at Clemson University, is receiving one of his profession’s highest honors, The Fellow Award from the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers.
When it comes to building a career, sharpening razor blades might not be the first thing that comes to mind for most aspiring professionals. But for Martin Lightsey ‘64, that need provided an opportunity that was perfect for his skill set.
The sign on the wall behind Suyi Li’s desk at Clemson University has a picture of a paper swan and a quick dash of motivation, “Keep calm and origami on.” The ancient art of paper folding is showing promise for new technology that ranges from cancer-fighting drugs to foldable armor for police officers, and Li is hoping to take the practice to the next level in a new research project.
