From the Dean

Students and faculty have passed the midterm mark, and everyone is now back on campus after spring break. This semester is rapidly coming to a close; in just a few short weeks, we will be giving final exams and getting ready for graduation. The college has had a busy, productive semester, especially over the last couple of months, and this issue highlights some of our more recent accomplishments.

The automotive and mobility industries are critical components of our state’s economy, and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s announcement that Clemson is one of only five universities selected to lead a University Transportation Center emphasizes the continued national recognition of our impact in this area. This new National Center for Transportation Cybersecurity and Resiliency will put us and our eight university partners from across the country at the forefront in defending the nation’s transportation system against cyberattacks.

In addition, our partnership with the United States Army Development Command (DEVCOM) Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC) has reached a significant milestone. Earlier this month, we completed a successful two-day technology review of the 30 active projects involving 70 faculty and 120 graduate researchers representing 10 departments across two colleges. This review highlights the impact of our continuing role in partnering with the army in the development of its next-generation of on-and off-road vehicles.

In this issue we also feature the accomplishments of some of our outstanding faculty. This month, two of our faculty members, Delphine and Brian Dean, both of whom earned their doctorates from MIT in 2005 and subsequently came to Clemson that fall, have now been appointed to leadership positions in our college. Delphine is the new chair of the Department of Bioengineering and Brian, the new C. Tycho Howle Director of the School of Computing. These two confirm the ability of our college to attract and retain exceptional new faculty who then become recognized as leaders both in their fields and beyond.

This issue also highlights several of the college’s faculty, students and staff who are engaged with public service and outreach as part of Clemson's land-grant mission, including a faculty member who helped his academic family when he was needed most; a student honor society recognized for its community service activities affecting both the academic and broader community; and several of our outreach events marking South Carolina STEM Education Month.

We realize that accomplishments like those featured here are due in large part to the generosity of you, our alumni, friends and supporters. You play an important role in our achievements, and as always, we are grateful for your support. If you want to help us continue to have an impact, click the “Make a Gift” tab below. We very much appreciate your generosity, and I look forward to seeing you on campus and thanking you in person in the near future.

Go Tigers!
