Multidisciplinary consortium creates the next generation of innovation and talent for aircraft safety
A nationwide team led by the Clemson University Center for Workforce Development is flying high after receiving a $2-million research grant from a National Science Foundation program called Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier: Core Research.
A group of 223 soon-to-be Clemson University graduates recently joined the Order of the Engineer. The Order of the Engineer is an association of professional engineers in the United States that engenders pride and responsibility in the profession. The ceremony is similar to that of physicians taking the Hippocratic oath before graduating from medical school.
Next week we will celebrate Thanksgiving, a day when we pause to reflect on our many blessings. This year, as always, I am deeply aware and appreciative of both the hard work and dedication of our students, staff and faculty and the generosity of you, our alumni and friends. We have had a very successful year because of your support and your willingness to share your time, talent and treasure. In this issue we highlight some of our more recent achievements.
We want to thank GE Vernova for their continued commitment to and support of STEM initiatives in the college. Their generosity will fund scholarships and programs focused on providing opportunities for students ranging from middle school through college. We look forward to collaborating with them over the next two years as we work together to expand the talent pipeline and create the workforce of the future. We also express our deepest appreciation to Michael Posillico, whose time, talent and treasure has helped transform part of Lowry Hall into the Posillico, Inc. Laboratory and is helping shape the future of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences.
We also continue to be recognized for our innovative research contributions, and this issue features our recent grant from the National Science Foundation funding a multidisciplinary partnership of public and private institutions focused on combining artificial intelligence and extended reality technologies to provide a new tool for aircraft inspection. This new tool will enhance the ability of the aviation technicians to identify and address aircraft maintenance issues, making air travel safer for the public. Just as important, this four-year project will address the growing need for these technicians prompted by our increasing reliance on air travel.
This issue also features the activities and award-winning accomplishments of our faculty who are having an impact on their fields and beyond. Their achievements as well as your generosity are reminders of how much we have to be thankful for. Many of you choose to make donations at this time of year, and if you would like to contribute to the college, you can click on the “Make a Gift” tab below. Your support is critical to our success, and as always I appreciate your generosity but most especially at this time of year.
I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving, one filled with family, friends and good food. Stay healthy and safe as we move into the holiday season.
With much appreciation,
Anand K. Gramopadhye, Dean
