Pioneering work in 3D-printing metals could supercharge U.S. manufacturing
The work that Clemson University’s Shunyu Liu is doing at the intersection of materials science and automotive engineering is helping advance additive manufacturing and could help turbocharge the U.S. manufacturing sector.
Earth-moving research shows promise in climate change fight
Clemson University researchers led by Larry Murdoch are proposing a new way to deliver a double-punch to climate change by burying massive amounts of carbon to keep it out of the atmosphere while raising the earth’s surface to protect low-lying areas from encroaching seas.
New era of drone innovation flying high at Clemson University
Fatemeh Afghah is working to make drones smarter and better able to operate independently in places where it’s tricky to do so.
‘Edge computing’ could make internet interact more quickly with the physical world
A group of Clemson University researchers led by Linke Guo has launched research into edge computing, a new way of processing and moving data at lightning speed.
Yue “Sophie” Wang selected as program director at National Science Foundation
Wang’s new role puts her in a position to influence the direction of research and education nationwide and underscores her leadership in the field as the the Warren H. Owen-Duke Energy Professor at Clemson University.
Mechanical engineering professor creates collaboration between students in Clemson and Mexico
One recent example of Rodrigo Martinez-Duarte's projects is the International Internship in Engineering Design program, which he started in collaboration with professor Tim Guggisberg and colleagues at the Universidad de Guanajuato in the summer of 2021 after a few years of discussion with the Hispanic Network of Michelin.
New library at CU-ICAR celebrates opening
Clemson Libraries celebrated the grand opening of its new branch library in the automotive engineering department at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) in Greenville with an Aug. 30 ribbon cutting.
This has been a banner year for both Clemson University and the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. The University saw a record number of applications, 60,195 to be precise. Our college welcomed its largest class of first-year students ever as well as 33 new, top-tier faculty members. The Clemson brand has never been stronger. One of the keys to our success is bringing in the best and brightest intellectual talent, and we will continue to recruit the best and brightest who can strengthen our college and the impact of our work.
This month’s newsletter highlights several of our most recent research efforts that are addressing some of the critical issues facing us today. Our faculty are pioneering advancements for sustainable carbon capture and the 3D-printing of metals for high-performance structural components that will revolutionize manufacturing. They are also conducting cutting-edge research to enhance drone technology and edge computing, efforts that promise to open new possibilities in areas ranging from smart cities and healthcare to relief efforts and search and rescue operations. In addition, we also feature the collaboration between Clemson’s mechanical engineering department and several universities in Mexico and the new library at the International Center for Automotive Research.
As these efforts show, the college is continuing to grow and strengthen. As always you, our alumni, supporters and friends, are a crucial part of our college community, and our achievements are only possible because of your support. Your contributions are key for our success, and if you would like to make a donation, click on the “Make a Gift” tab below. I appreciate all you have done and continue to do for this college.
