To create an environment where collaboration between students, faculty, and leaders from industry and government agencies generates ideas and solves complex problems.
The Watt Family Innovation Center is under development with state-of-the-art information technology and special facilities to enable undergraduate and graduate students — from all Clemson colleges — to think ahead of the curve, develop their own ideas with support from faculty mentors and connect to industry partners seeking new methods and solutions.
There will be flexible space for collaboration and project development and for industry and government partners to work side-by-side with students and faculty, exploring and discovering new concepts for the marketplace.
Students and their innovative ideas and concepts will be nurtured and supported by faculty members and professional partners.
The Watt Family Innovation Center is projected to open spring semester 2016.
