The College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences educates, creates and disseminates new knowledge, engages students in critical thinking and inspires the cutting-edge innovations of tomorrow.
The long-term future of South Carolina’s advanced manufacturing workforce is coming sharply into focus over the next month as students across the state join a competition that could win them a tour of Clemson University’s research facilities. The Clemson University Center for Advanced Manufacturing has challenged students in grades 2-7 to envision what manufacturing will […]
I especially want to congratulate our 2020 graduates who have reached a significant personal milestone. Your resolve in completing your degrees under these circumstances is a testament to your determination and commitment. I would encourage you to remember and be appreciative of the people who have helped you along the way, your parents, extended family, friends and well-wishers, all of whom have had a role in shaping the person you’ve become.
Three Clemson University seniors and three graduate students received Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation.
Researchers have developed a new way of simulating heart attacks in a lab and then using the engineered tissue to screen drugs that show promise for treating patients with heart damage, according to a new article in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering. Corresponding author Ying Mei, an associate professor of bioengineering at Clemson, said that […]
Here are some of the stories of Clemson’s people. We share them as a simple record of deeds great and small that kept us safe, brought us comfort and cared for our community. These acts of service and sacrifice largely went unnoticed while they were happening.
The Clemson University School of Health Research has appointed ten new faculty scholars from three colleges and four new clinical faculty from Prisma Health. Each year, Clemson University School of Health Research (CUSHR) appoints new faculty scholars and clinical faculty. Faculty Scholars are faculty members who demonstrate a strong record of health research, teaching and […]
Clemson University’s Board of Trustees approved on Thursday the University’s plan for a tuition and mandatory fee freeze for the 2020-21 academic year for all in-state and out-of-state students.
“All I did was hit ‘print.’” That’s the way Tim Pruett describes his involvement in producing a 3D ventilator expander prototype. Pruett’s modest, self-effacing personality masks an artist who is deft at manipulating the HP Jet Fusion 3D printer. He recently provided potentially life-saving proof of concept prototypes to one of Clemson University’s upstate healthcare […]
It would take a human being years to read tens of thousands of scholarly articles, but an artificial intelligence system that can do it in a matter of minutes is about to go to work in the fight against COVID-19. Ilya Safro, an associate professor of computer science at Clemson University, said that his team […]
Clemson University researchers are volunteering their time and resources as part of a statewide effort to develop serologic tests that could play a key role in reigniting South Carolina’s economy and protecting healthcare professionals on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. A test on track to be ready this week would be aimed at detecting […]
A nationwide partnership of scientists and engineers, including Mark Johnson of Clemson University, is working on new methods of cleaning and sanitizing medical masks to help protect healthcare providers from COVID-19. Highly pressurized carbon dioxide could be used as part of a process that not only sanitizes N95 masks by inactivating the novel coronavirus but […]
Benafsh Husain Sapra will soon become the first person to hold a Ph.D. in biomedical data science and informatics as part of a program jointly offered by Clemson University and the Medical University of South Carolina. Sapra successfully defended her dissertation on April 8 in a meeting conducted entirely over Zoom, the video conferencing platform, […]
Melinda Harman of Clemson University is volunteering her time to explore how hospitals could wash and sanitize medical masks without having to ship them elsewhere or buy an expensive piece of equipment. A device that Harman designed to hold multiple N95 masks is central to her idea. It would help ensure the masks maintain their […]
Some of the best and brightest students in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences are receiving congratulatory packages in the mail this month, a recognition of their outstanding work in several areas, including academics, character, leadership and research. Social distancing is preventing the college from holding its 2019-20 Honors and Awards ceremony for […]
Ilya Safro of Clemson University is working to create algorithms that combine the best of quantum computing and classical computing, a hybrid that could put quantum hardware a step closer to solving real-life problems. No one yet knows whether it will be possible to solve practical problems with quantum computers, a technology that for certain […]
