Charles Dove was an undergraduate at Clemson University when he helped lead teams that experiment with nuclear fusion, launch rockets to the same height as Mount Everest and build small satellites that orbit Earth. It was an extraordinary Clemson experience, one that was capped by a high honor. Dove, who graduated in May with his […]
A professor whose work could lead to paint that heals itself like skin has written a review for a highly selective publication, sharpening the focus on Clemson University’s excellence in materials science research. Marek Urban’s review on self-healing polymers appears in the latest edition of Nature Reviews Materials. Self-healing polymers are a type of smart […]
Laine Mears remembers walking through a factory as a visitor a few years back and seeing a worker stare off into space while screwing fasteners into an assembly, his body at work but his mind apparently elsewhere. The sight made Mears wonder about the worker’s future: What skills would he need in the age of […]
Clemson University students and faculty have always known “there’s something in these hills,” and now the rest of the world is starting to understand, too.
