Leading the Way

Technical skills in the classroom are only part of what is needed to succeed after college. As the world evolves, so must skill-sets. Graduates will need to build bridges that bring together the best minds, regardless of culture, nation, or discipline. With these qualities, students will be prepared to lead in the 21st century.

Clemson Intersect

Clemson Intersect is a collaborative project between the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences (CECAS) and the Wilbur O. and Ann Powers College of Business to reinforce the relationship between business and the technical degree programs. The program's key focus areas include Business Analytics, Leadership, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and Value Chain & Advanced Manufacturing.

A speaker series will consist of professionals who will highlight trends and best practices from their organizations. Talks will also include how business, engineering, and computing work together to generate a global impact. The initiative will, eventually, expand to offer networking opportunities between students and speakers.

Study Abroad

Clemson engineering students have a variety of opportunities to travel abroad and be exposed to unique cultures and customs. In addition, ongoing projects allow students to apply practical knowledge to hands-on experiences while making contributions to the living conditions of those who don't have access to things we take for granted. We encourage all CECAS students to accept the challenge and make a difference by getting involved and growing through these rewarding international project opportunities.
