From the Dean

We are well into October and midway through the Fall semester. As always at this time of the year, we had the opportunity to welcome our alumni back to campus when we celebrated Homecoming. In this issue of IDEAS Monthly, we highlight some of their contributions and the recent accomplishments of our staff, faculty and students.

A team of bioengineers, all women, placed first in the undergraduate category at the Collegiate Inventors Competition in addition to winning the Arrow Electronics People’s Choice Award. And these are not their first honors; the team’s novel medical device, which began as their senior design project, has also earned several local and regional awards, including second place in the Atlantic Coast Conference InVenture Prize competition and first place in the PDMA Carolinas student innovation competition. We also highlight the collaboration between an interdisciplinary team of Clemson engineering and business students and a Washington State University-Everett team addressing the water quality on commercial airlines.

In addition, this issue features several of the college’s outstanding students — our five National Scholars and four Breakthrough Scholars, as well as our 41 recipients of the GE John Lammas Annual Scholarship and our recipient of a Mark V. Bellamy Brooks Endowed Scholarship. We also recognize the accomplishments of our faculty who have received Robert H. Brooks Sports Science Institute research seed grants and the college’s postdoctoral fellow who received the Clemson University Distinguished Postdoctoral Award. These honors and awards underscore our college’s continuing success in attracting top talent at both the student and faculty levels.

Finally, this issue highlights the impact of the recent recipient of the Amazon Industrial Innovation Fund and our long-standing partnership between Duke Energy and PEER & WISE in introducing STEM careers to 7th and 8th-grade students, with the goal of widening and diversifying the talent in professions related to these disciplines.

Our strategic corporate partners and, most significantly, the named scholarships and awards are excellent examples of how critical you — our alumni, supporters and friends — are to our success. The contributions of your time and treasure are key to our being able to create the next generation of innovators, scholars, engineers, entrepreneurs and scientists. If you would like to donate to help us continue to have an impact, you can click the “Make a Gift” tab below; every donation makes a difference. I appreciate your generosity, and I look to thanking you in person when you visit our campus.

Go Tigers!
