From the Dean

February and March have been busy, productive months for the college. At the end of last month, we celebrated our annual Engineering Week with a series of activities focused on encouraging interest in the engineering and technology fields, particularly for grades K-12. Supporting such events is an important part of our continuing efforts to ensure a well-educated, innovative workforce in our state.

In this month’s newsletter, we highlight the strengthening of our partnership with the U.S. Army and its Ground Vehicle Systems Center, a collaboration focused on designing the virtual tools needed for the next generation of on- and off-road vehicles. This transformative gift speaks to Clemson’s rich military heritage and its continuing contribution to global security.

Also this month, we are featuring a new partnership with Clemson University, the Medical University of South Carolina and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. This collaboration, which is based on the complementary strengths of its partners, is advancing health innovation in the area of temporomandibular joint disorders, more commonly known as TMJ, as well as strengthening the education of the next generation of oral health providers. This partnership and others like it are so important for addressing the healthcare needs of our state.

This newsletter also recognizes our award-winning faculty who have distinguished themselves as leaders and innovators and several of our outstanding students for their exceptional work both in and out of the classroom. As you can see, we continue to play a critical role in our state’s and nation’s future; however, this is possible only because of your generous support. If you wish to make a donation, you can do so by clicking on the “Make a Gift” tab below. Know that I deeply appreciate all that you do for our college.

Stay healthy and safe,


Anand K. Gramopadhye, Dean
