MHI Vestas recently was awarded the Silver Medal in the category of renewable energy at the prestigious Edison Awards for its 9.5 megawatt offshore wind turbine, which it will test at Clemson University’s wind turbine-testing facility at the SCE&G Energy Innovation Center in the former naval shipyard.
Arelis Moore de Peralta, Ph.D., Clemson University research assistant professor in the Department of Youth, Family and Community Studies and assistant professor in the Department of Languages, has received the 2018 Phil and Mary Bradley Award for Mentoring in Creative Inquiry. This award is given to a faculty member in recognition of their outstanding work with undergraduate […]
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).
Benjamin White, an associate professor of religious studies in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Clemson University, has been awarded a Summer Stipend from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). White received the $6,000 research grant to support his project “The Authorship of the Pauline Epistles: The Promise and Limitations of Computational Methods.” […]
Born and raised in Norway, this Tiger taught at the University of Bergen and the IT University of Copenhagen before he moved to America. Today, he is not only a respected member of Clemson’s faculty — he represents them as the newly inducted president of the Faculty Senate. Meet Jan Holmevik. Title: Associate professor, English […]
A team of Clemson researchers is using a $398,263 award from the National Science Foundation’s Broadening Participation in Engineering program to examine factors that both encourage and discourage Black students from pursuing education in engineering fields. Researchers will also examine how different academic pathways in engineering vary by gender and institution type for Black students.
Six Clemson students traveled to Boston College last week to participate in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Meeting of the Minds. The conference is held annually every spring to celebrate undergraduate research and provides an opportunity for sharing of ideas and collaboration.
As the need for more creative, technological solutions to health issues increases, companies meet constant design challenges when they offer up telemedicine technology or medication management apps designed with older adults in mind. Faculty from Clemson University and North Carolina State University examine this design challenge from a psychological perspective with a new book, “Aging, Technology and Health.”
Gov. Henry McMaster is honoring a Clemson University researcher who has quickly become a leader in the technology behind composite materials, part of a fast-growing industry that has brought South Carolina thousands of new jobs and investment in the billions of dollars. Srikanth Pilla, the Jenkins Professor of Automotive Engineering and dean’s faculty fellow, is this year’s recipient of the Young Scientist Award for Excellence in Scientific Research.
A study out of Clemson University’s department of biological sciences has identified tiny particles in the brain that regulate the neuroimmune system, a result that might one day be used in treating traumatic brain injuries or viral infections of the brain.
Improved brain injury diagnoses and approaches to knee surgery are among the sports research projects that have received a boost thanks to seed grants from the Robert H. Brooks Sports Science Institute at Clemson University.
South Carolina strengthened its position as a fast-rising force in advanced manufacturing as Xin Zhao became the third Clemson University faculty member in four years to win an award recognizing young engineers who contribute to manufacturing. Zhao, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, is receiving the Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award from the Detroit-based professional […]
After 17-year-old Margaux Ascherl saw the painted tiger paws on the road leading to Clemson University and the campus, she knew she was meant to be there. “I really fell in love with the place and never looked back,” Ascherl said. After her freshman year, she transferred from Duquesne University in Pennsylvania to Clemson. However, […]
With the help of the Clemson University Research Foundation, this Tiger filed for and finally obtained a patent for his research that could revolutionize the fertilization process of organic crops.
Temperatures in the next generation of gas turbines are expected to reach as high as 3100 degrees Fahrenheit, heat so extreme it could literally vaporize components under high velocity steam. The challenge for engineers is to create components that can withstand the high-temperature steam corrosion. If they can, gas turbines will run more efficiently, saving money and creating fewer greenhouse gases. It’s a task bringing together GE Power and Clemson University engineers, who have launched a new research project with $600,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy.
