McAdams Hall is located between the Hendrix Student Center and the Cooper Library. Most AGM classes and labs are held here and offices of all AGM and BE (Biosystems Engineering Department) on-campus faculty are housed here.
Our Metal Fabrication Teaching Lab in McAdams Hall is primarily used for teaching AGM, AgEd, and BE fabrication technology classes. Resources include: TIG welders, MIG welders, stick welders, bench grinders, drill presses, plasma cutters, box and pan brake, sheet metal shear, sheet metal slip-form roller, horizontal band saw, metal punch, oxy-acetylene torches, sanders, air handler/ventilation system, and other metal working toolsand equipment dedicated to teaching.
Our Wood Fabrication Teaching Lab in McAdams Hall is typically used for teaching AGM, AgEd, and BE fabrication technology classes. Resources include: table saws, miter saws, radial arm saws, planer, jointer, mortising machine, pedestal belt/disc sander, dust collection system, wood lathe, drill press, vertical band saw, and various other wood working tools and equipment dedicated to teaching.
Our Power and Machinery Teaching Lab in McAdams Hall is used for hydraulics, mobile power, and machinery management classes. Resources include: engines and tools for disassembly/reassembly activities, small engine dynamometer, bench scale sprayer demonstration units, hydraulic simulator, cutaway models, various engine testing and analysis equipment, biodiesel production, alternative energy demonstration, and other related teaching tools.
Our Research Fabrication Lab in McAdams Hall is used for the development, fabrication, and assembly of undergraduate and graduate research projects.Resources available include: vertical mill, horizontal lathes, iron worker, MIG welder, stick welder, drill presses, vertical band saw, hydraulic sheet metal shear, cornice brake, surface grinder, engine hoists, forklifts, and other related metal working tools and equipment.
The Clemson Aquaculture Facility is located on the edge of campus. Because many faculty members and students in our department are involved in research projects here, it provides a great opportunity for projects and teaching. Concepts include: finfish production, shrimp production, data acquisition, sensors and instrumentation, electrical controls, hydraulic power and controls, microbial metabolism, methane production, microalgae production, and biofuels production.
The Calhoun Field Laboratory, also known as "the bottoms", is an 80 acre plot on the edge of campus that supports research programs in aquaculture, horticulture, and agronomy. AGM labs are sometimes conducted here to demonstrate field machinery concepts, soil infiltration and drainage, and soil and water conservation techniques.
Our Student Lounge in McAdams Hall is a place where students can gather before and after classes to work on projects or just relax. Club and group-project meetings are often held here, along with departmental receptions and gatherings. Wireless internet and a laserjet printer are available here for student use.
The Edisto Research and Education Center (REC) located in Blackville, SC is visited by AGM students at least once every semester. Several applied learning activities take place here related to: precision and variable rate agriculture, irrigation technologies, field production optimization techniques, agricultural sensors and controls, nutrient management, pesticide application management, imagery analysis and application, and many more technologies at the forefront of agricultural research.
The Simpson Agricultural Research Station in Pendleton, SC is where many activities of Clemson Research Farm Services (RFS) take place, included field crop production and research, variety testing, nutrient management strategies, and pesticide research. Several AGM students generally find part-time employment with RFS during their stay at Clemson and some have been hired full-time after graduation.
