A Clemson University automotive engineer who teaches students many of the skills they need for careers in robotics and self-driving cars is winning an award that recognizes him as one of the nation’s top young engineering educators. Yunyi Jia, an assistant professor, is receiving the Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award from SAE International. At least […]
New research is putting Clemson University at the forefront of an emerging technology that could help computers run faster and use less energy, while allowing them to continue shrinking in size. Kai He, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering, is launching a two-year project with a $299,204 fellowship from the National Science Foundation. […]
A Clemson University professor who has advanced research into batteries, fuel cells and nuclear waste management will be honored by his peers in February for his research achievements and service to his profession. Kyle Brinkman, the chair of Clemson’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering, will be recognized as a Brimacombe Medalist by The Minerals, […]
Jorge Rodríguez of Clemson University begins his work days by rising as early as 4 a.m., climbing aboard a bus emblazoned with a friendly cartoon Tiger and driving to a middle school in South Carolina. Sometimes he travels as far as Florence, sometimes as close to home as Pendleton or Seneca, but his mission is […]
Rajendra Bordia is the new George J. Bishop, III Chair in Ceramic and Materials Engineering.
Staff members from Clemson University’s largest college collected canned food for hungry students and honored four of their colleagues when they gathered Dec. 10 in the Madren Conference Center for their holiday party. For the third year, staff members in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences used the annual celebration to gather donations […]
An important part of medical school could soon be upgraded for the digital age, as a group of Clemson University researchers develop the first simulator of its kind to help teach future vascular surgeons how to suture blood vessels. The SutureCoach would come equipped with cameras and sensors to capture a range of data, including how the surgical tool and needle move and the forces the user exerts.
Students and technologists across the country will soon have a new and interactive way to learn about manufacturing the light-based technologies that are crucial for a host of next-generation products and services, including high-speed wireless networks.
Clemson University alumnus Matt Kelley started his engineering business in a room above a detached garage with a laptop he had bought on eBay for $500. He had no customers, no employees and no equipment, but he had a dream and the drive to turn it into reality. Little more than four years later, Kelley […]
Two Clemson University professors who hold endowed chairs are among the newest fellows elected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). John Ballato and Marek Urban will be honored on Feb. 15, 2020, during the association’s annual meeting in Seattle. It will be the first time since 1965 that Clemson has had two professors honored in the same year.
Clemson University researchers based in North Charleston have received $1.24 million from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a new way to test a key piece of equipment on offshore wind turbines. The goal is to enhance their reliability, making them more cost-effective and attractive to build
Martine LaBerge said that in her 17 years leading Clemson University’s bioengineering department, she has learned something about leadership that she passes on to colleagues who are just starting down the same path. “I tell them it’s all about people,” she said. “You get people aligned under one roof to believe in one brand and […]
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize the world as we know it. For many, the term AI evokes imagery of science fiction, yet in reality, this new form of technology has wide ranging applications that are incredibly beneficial to society. Whether it is through improving efficiency, accuracy or intelligent decision making across industries, […]
When looking for flora and fauna in a city, it may be a good idea to look up. In urban landscapes, placing gardens on rooftops is a growing trend. Even Clemson University’s campus hosts two green roofs, on Lee III and the Watt Family Innovation Center. A green roof is one covered with soil and […]
Clemson University researchers are developing three new sensors designed to withstand two of humanity’s harshest environments, the intense heat inside power plants and the tremendous pressure at the bottom of hydraulic fracturing wells. The research, led by Hai Xiao, is aimed at advancing the technology behind fossil fuels, which produce much of the nation’s power. The ultimate goal is to generate power more efficiently while lowering emissions and using fewer resources.
