Two Ph.D. students are winning fellowships from the social media company Facebook, an honor that goes to fewer than 2 percent of applicants, supports research for up to two academic years and helps raise Clemson University’s profile in Silicon Valley. Moses Namara and Samaneh Zamanifard were among 36 Ph.D. candidates from 16 universities selected this […]
Clemson University’s civil engineers are remembering Robert F. Nowack as a legend who taught students as much about life as he did about statics and dynamics in a career that spanned more than 60 years and helped shape three generations of engineers. Nowack died on Feb. 4, five days after his 96th birthday, according to […]
The end of an era occurred on February 4th with the passing of Professor Bob Nowack. In his 62 years teaching at Clemson, Bob not only was one of the best educators of students, but he also cared about students as individuals. His goal was not only to make them better students, but better men […]
Life is a dash. This was the takeaway from the final class of the semester in Serji’s Civil Engineering Materials class (CE 351 or the previous number before the course numbers changed). This was his famous “Life” lecture that he did every semester. Our gravestone will list our year of birth and year of death separated […]
A pocket-size technology that has radically changed how people communicate, hail rides and listen to music could soon play a starring role in transforming how aid reaches people trapped in some of the most dangerous places on Earth. The smartphone is the platform for a new online tool that a team of Clemson University students […]
Michael Steven Leonard was remembered at Clemson University on Monday as an outstanding professor and stable influence who served two terms as industrial engineering chair in the 1990s and early 2000s. Leonard, 72, of Macon, Georgia, died Jan. 23, according to an obituary. Leonard served as department chair from 1990-95, then stepped down to focus […]

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 […]

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 […]
