Clemson University researchers are working on some of the toughest questions in nuclear safety, including how to build next-generation reactors, where to store waste and how to test water for radioactivity. The research comes as nuclear power plants across the nation age and as the world’s attention turns to Japan on the third anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi reactor disaster.
Growing concerns about brain trauma to football players have led to a new pact between Clemson University and two companies that could change the materials used to make helmets.
A new agreement that paves the way for Clemson University to do research with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency could provide students with valuable real-world experience, while shedding new light on the climate and environment. A memorandum of understanding that will be signed Friday calls for the university to support internships with the EPA and […]
Two Clemson University graduate researchers are working on new applications for “connected cars” as automakers begin producing more vehicles that can go online while on the road.
Shannon can do the “Cha Cha Slide,” but her shuffle across the computer screen is a little wooden as if she isn’t quite sure of herself. The virtual character will be rebooted over the next year as part of a Clemson University research project that could help explain whether real-world movement helps students learn.
About 220 elementary school students will take a field trip to Clemson University Thursday to learn more about engineering and science as leaders across the nation link the disciplines to economic prosperity.
A Clemson University team went to North Charleston on Jan. 25 for the second event in a four-city campaign to urge the state’s middle- and high-school students to consider careers in engineering, a fast-growing field filled with high-paying jobs. The professors, students and staff took their “Emagine” tour to the Lowcountry at a time when […]
A Clemson University department that helped pioneer the use of engineering principles to understand and treat disease is celebrating 50 years of awarding graduate degrees while helping prime the Upstate for what could be a boom in the medical-technology industry.
A new ultrasound probe that has been developed at Clemson University could take some of the guesswork out of determining the severity of rotator-cuff injuries, making it easier for doctors to decide whether patients need surgery.
The Institute of International Education announced Monday that Clemson Engineers for Developing Countries has won a 2014 Andrew Heiskell Award in the study-abroad category. It's one of the top awards in the world of international education.
The Clemson University technology that could power industrial tools, run consumer electronics and help reduce carbon emissions starts with building blocks that are about 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair.
A team will travel from Clemson University to Spartanburg Saturday to launch a four-city campaign across South Carolina to urge the state’s middle- and high-school students to consider careers in engineering, a fast-growing field filled with high-paying jobs.
People have been making glass for 5,000 years, but not like Clemson University’s John Ballato. The materials science and engineering professor leads a team that has been doing research that could come straight out of Capt. Kirk’s logbook. Ballato’s peers have taken notice of his work. Clemson faculty has voted him the winner of the “Class of ‘39 Award for Excellence.”
New voting technology that was pioneered by a Clemson University computer science professor soon will be deployed to Wisconsin and Florida for pilot programs that he expects will begin to revolutionize how voters nationwide cast ballots.
A Clemson University environmental engineering professor who has advised scores of students and worked to keep nation’s water sources clean has been named associate dean for research and graduate studies in the College of Engineering and Science.
