Cardiologist Waenard L. Miller and his wife, Sheila, of Frisco, Texas, have given $2 million to Clemson University to establish the Dr. Waenard L. Miller, Jr. ’69 and Sheila M. Miller Endowed Chair in Medical Physics.
Emily Thompson's sensible flats are firmly planted on terra firma. She'll graduate in May as one of Clemson's most-decorated physics undergraduates ever, racking up honors from a Goldwater Fellowship to an Astronaut Scholarship and "every award available to her at Clemson," according to Mark Leising, the interim dean of the new College of Science.
Several exceptional students from the College of Engineering and Science were honored in April at the annual Honors and Awards ceremony in the Madren Conference Center ballroom. The awards were aimed at honoring the college’s best and brightest students. Many are engaged in service projects that are improving the quality of life not only for […]
Seven Clemson University students have received Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation, and five others received honorable mention awards in the national competition.
Five Clemson University researchers have brought home some of the nation’s top awards for junior faculty members and are helping make robots fly, develop new medicines, save buildings from the wrecking ball and create new ways to make fertilizer.
A Clemson University researcher is using a high-profile funding award to better understand tiny particles that have improved everyday products and shown promise for engineering better medicines but have also raised concerns about environmental and biological safety. Feng Ding, an assistant professor of physics, is furthering his research into nanoparticles with a $506,569 award from […]
Mark D. Leising, who chairs Clemson University's physics and astronomy department, has been appointed interim dean of the new College of Science.
Clemson University’s physics and astronomy department is sponsoring a pair of public lectures by noted academicians Joel Primack and Nancy Ellen Abrams. This husband and wife team will be on campus Thursday and Friday.
Emily Thompson, a senior physics major at Clemson University, has been awarded an Astronaut Foundation Scholarship. The scholarship, a stipend of up to $10,000, is awarded to students who demonstrate high academic merit in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) fields.
Drought and population booms have a growing number of communities taking a closer look at building desalination plants, but turning saltwater to freshwater is more expensive than many would like. Many researchers believe the magic bullet that lowers costs will be a high-strength membrane that can withstand the intense water pressure needed to desalinate water. […]
All four of the Clemson nominees for the prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering received the award this year.
An astronaut who served on three shuttle missions and later became NASA’s deputy administrator visited Clemson University on Sept. 26 to share his experiences and present a $10,000 scholarship to a physics student. Fred Gregory’s visit to the Edgar Brown University Union was part of a program funded by the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation. John Farmer a […]
Two Clemson University researchers have developed a new technology that could enable gadgets ranging from computers to cell phones to run faster by transmitting information with light instead of electrical current.
An astronaut who served on three shuttle missions and later became NASA’s deputy administrator will be at Clemson University Friday to share his experiences and present a $10,000 scholarship to a physics student.
An international team of scientists led by a Clemson University astrophysicist has discovered new evidence that planets are forming around a star about 335 light years from Earth.
