In today’s new reality of smarter, more connected vehicles, there is no better place to witness rapid transformative innovation than in the mobility sector. With global expertise in autonomy, prototyping and propulsion, Clemson’s automotive engineering department is driving this innovation with Zoran Filipi at the helm. Located at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive […]
Automotive autonomy technology is changing economies and global industries – and is also a driving force behind military modernization. Bringing these self-driving vehicles to life on- and off-road requires new concepts and algorithms to be tested expeditiously and cost-effectively – all of which happen through virtual prototyping. This key enabler for autonomy is the focus behind a new $18 million center housed at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) and a research partnership with the U.S. Army Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC).
Gaye and Joel Sprague are keeping their late son’s memory alive with an endowment that has begun providing scholarships for Clemson University undergraduates who are majoring in civil engineering and are underrepresented in the field. The Spragues’ son, Ben, was an 18-year-old freshman at Clemson when he died on Dec. 9, 2007. He grew up […]
Making the campus more accessible to those with limited mobility is the goal of a collaboration between University Facilities and Civil Engineering that will add more sidewalk ramps and routes for those in wheelchairs to get from parking lots to buildings. The University allocated more than $400,000 from the Facilities maintenance budget for the improvements. […]
The second in a series of virtual panel discussions related to how manufacturing is succeeding in a COVID-19 economy was held last month. Anand Gramopadhye, dean of the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences at Clemson University, and John Lummus, president and CEO of the Upstate SC Alliance, are partnering to host conversations with […]
Bill Paseman figures he has about two years. That’s two years to find therapies for the rare, untreatable kidney cancer that first showed up in his body as a kidney stone and a sore leg on a business trip. Paseman, an engineer and Silicon Valley veteran, isn’t one to sit back and hope someone else […]
Clemson University researchers will play a leading role in teaching the nation’s manufacturers how to protect themselves from cyberattack, as they connect a growing number of devices, sensors and other equipment to the internet.
Kevin Juang said that students chose his Ph.D. advisor, Joel Greenstein, as Clemson University’s industrial engineering Professor of the Year so many times that the honor picked up a colloquial nickname, the “Joel Greenstein Award.” “In fact, an informal rule was enacted, placing a limit of three consecutive years that any one person can receive […]
