Jon Calhoun of Clemson University is leading a new project aimed at helping engineers and scientists use supercomputers to solve increasingly large problems, potentially clearing the way for new research ranging from predicting the weather to designing better airplanes. Calhoun, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, said the techniques he and his students […]
A Clemson University professor who has been celebrated for bringing together colleagues for big research projects is taking the helm of the Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Hai Xiao will serve as the department’s interim chair, replacing Daniel Noneaker, who recently stepped down to serve as associate dean for research in the College […]
Oliver Myers and Melissa Smith will soon begin jointly serving as associate deans focused on inclusive excellence in Clemson University’s College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. Their appointments follow a search led by Cindy Lee, chair of the Inclusive Excellence Search Committee. Myers, who joined Clemson in 2014, is an associate professor of mechanical […]
Daniel L. Noneaker will soon begin serving as the new associate dean for research in Clemson University’s College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. Noneaker’s appointment follows a search led by Brian Powell, chair of the Associate Dean for Research Search Committee. Noneaker joined Clemson in 1993 as an assistant professor and rose through the […]
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 […]
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.
Researchers at Clemson University and Prisma Health have received funding to collaborate on the development of new medical treatment and diagnostic technologies. Three Clemson-Prisma Health collaborations received investments from the recently created Innovation Maturation Fund, a joint effort between the Health Sciences Center (HSC) at Prisma Health and the Clemson University Division of Research.
Clemson University researchers based in North Charleston have received $1.24 million from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a new way to test a key piece of equipment on offshore wind turbines. The goal is to enhance their reliability, making them more cost-effective and attractive to build
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize the world as we know it. For many, the term AI evokes imagery of science fiction, yet in reality, this new form of technology has wide ranging applications that are incredibly beneficial to society. Whether it is through improving efficiency, accuracy or intelligent decision making across industries, […]
Clemson University researchers are developing three new sensors designed to withstand two of humanity’s harshest environments, the intense heat inside power plants and the tremendous pressure at the bottom of hydraulic fracturing wells. The research, led by Hai Xiao, is aimed at advancing the technology behind fossil fuels, which produce much of the nation’s power. The ultimate goal is to generate power more efficiently while lowering emissions and using fewer resources.
It’s always a special time when some of South Carolina’s brightest minds gather in one place, but an Oct. 4 ceremony just off Lake Hartwell was especially notable for the Clemson University College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. Eight faculty members received awards and several others were recognized for tenure, promotions and other achievements. […]
Clemson University is collaborating on a $20-million project that could make the internet faster and more secure, opening the door to a host of new services that haven’t yet been imagined, including some in artificial intelligence and virtual reality.
Students from throughout the Southeast are converging on Clemson University this Saturday for a competition that will test their cybersecurity skills and help prepare them to protect sensitive data from hackers. At least eight teams are planning to participate in Clemson University-Capture The Flag.
Like so many great projects, the research that earned Ryan DeFever and Steven Hall three awards and a spot in a respected academic journal was fueled in part by coffee. “Steven and I had probably 25 walks to Starbucks and back– at least–during the course of this research,” DeFever said. “There was a lot of […]
An electrical engineer who sees big opportunities to commercialize technology in South Carolina and surrounding states is joining Clemson University as the new Warren H. Owen Distinguished Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
