Another year and another class of Clemson students are graduating and heading out to make their mark on the world. We will miss them, but are equally excited to see what they accomplish next.
April Gillens, a doctoral student in Clemson’s environmental and engineering science (EES) program, is combining forensics and nuclear research to help keep us safe from nuclear terrorism and dangerous nuclear trafficking. A native of Eutawville, S.C., Gillens’ research in nuclear forensics looks for unique carbon fingerprints associated with particular elements of nuclear materials, which would aid […]
Several exceptional students from the College of Engineering and Science were honored in April at the annual Honors and Awards ceremony in the Madren Conference Center ballroom. The awards were aimed at honoring the college’s best and brightest students. Many are engaged in service projects that are improving the quality of life not only for […]
Clemson University researchers will soon begin conducting experiments in four forests across South Carolina to address growing concerns that techniques employed in the fight against wildfires could affect the quality of drinking water. The team has received $1 million from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and $260,048 from the university to figure out which forest […]
Clemson University students who have played a central role in providing clean water to a small Nicaraguan village will return over winter break to check on a well and chlorination system that has transformed residents’ lives. The university’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders is in the final stage of a five-year project in La Pintada. […]
Using algae to treat wastewater could be an innovative way for small communities across the country to save energy and keep pollutants out of the environment.
Take a moment to meet six Clemson seniors and see where they're headed after graduation.
Clemson University’s Army and Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps units will hold a joint ceremony to commission 36 officers at 1 p.m. May 7 in Tillman Hall auditorium. Nineteen students will receive commissions into the U.S. Army, and 17 students will receive commissions into the U.S. Air Force.
A Clemson University professor whose work with microbes helps keep the public safe from hazardous chemicals was introduced Wednesday as the new chairman of the Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences.
A team of more than 20 researchers from across the state will begin running field experiments at Clemson University next year to find the best ways of storing nuclear waste. Experiments have been done on a small scale in labs, but a new outdoor site will allow researchers to test underground storage methods on an […]
It’s extraordinary enough to win two professional honors a few days apart, but Les Grady did it 11 years after retiring from Clemson University.
At first glance, it may seem an odd home for the study of nuclear engineering, alongside courses like geology, hydrogeology and environmental engineering and science. But to Timothy DeVol, there is no better place to teach the fundamentals of an industry that provides nearly 20 percent of America's electrical energy.
