Clemson University’s Wood Utilization + Design Institute

Clemson University’s Wood Utilization + Design Institute (WU+D) is a multidisciplinary engine of innovation where foresters, architects, engineers, constructors and building industry stakeholders coalesce to design advancements in wood-based construction materials to compete with steel, concrete and other materials currently used in nonresidential construction.


WU+D will forge new markets and grow South Carolina’s $18.6 billion forest products industry by:

  • Drawing new business and industry to South Carolina;
  • Providing education and training, research and development, and direct marketing of wood-based technical solutions;
  • Developing forest management protocols to grow trees with higher quality fiber;
  • Engineering groundbreaking manufacturing and construction processes for wood-based products, resins, adhesives, and fasteners.

WU+D will also enhance the educational and career opportunities of Clemson students by:

  • Preparing the next generation of architects, engineers, foresters, and material and wood scientists;
  • Creating an experiential learning environment where students test products they have developed through installation in prototype buildings;
  • Attracting undergraduate Creative Inquiry teams to engineer innovative wood products that meet the needs of the building construction industry;
  • Fostering collaborative research connecting Clemson’s main campus with its statewide research and public service centers.
