Smart classrooms, also called electronic or technology-enhanced classrooms have created new opportunities in teaching and learning by integrating networking, computers, and audiovisual technologies in the Industrial Engineering Department.
Some of the unique features of our smart classrooms
Presentations require little set-up in the classroom.
Faculty can work with their laptop computer to become familiar with the hardware and software outside of the classroom.
Faculty are assured that their applications and files will be loaded on the computer in the classroom, since they load them on their laptop themselves before class.
Laptop computers are simple, user-friendly, non-intimidating hardware.
Faculty has a choice of platform (Windows, Unix, and MAC).
The portability of the laptop means faculty can get the computer set up and ready at their leisure and the presenter has more confidence that everything will be OK.
Ethernet connectivity provides access to information outside the classroom.
Files from an office computer can be loaded onto the laptop computer, or the office computer can be accessed in real time from the classroom using the laptop as a terminal.
Internet text and images can be downloaded in the office and transferred to the laptop, or Internet text and images can be accessed in real time in the classroom using the laptop as a terminal.

Master's Students Office
The Design Studio (Freeman 140) and Design Laboratory (Freeman 138) comprise a suite of reconfigurable space that can be used as a conventional classroom, team classroom, and team design area. Courses in design are taught here, and student teams have access to an area dedicated to team design projects. This area supports the initial design course (IE 201) and the capstone design course and project (IE 467) as well as graduate courses in design. In addition to team project space, students have access to a large-screen PC/TV, electronic whiteboard, networked workstations, video teleconferencing, and FAX.
Doctoral Students Office
Studying for a PhD in Clemson University will give you the opportunity to be part of a vibrant PhD student community and a world-class department. Our PhD students are a very important part of the departmental research community and are a key component in our ability to maintain our international research reputation.
The best way to secure a place on our PhD program is to make informal contact with the member of academic staff whose research you are interested in. You can find a list of these people here. However, you can make a more general application and we will try and find a fit between your research interests and a member of staff in the department.
All our PhD students have their own desk and computer in an office that is typically shared with one or two other students. Research students have full access to the departmental facilities including: photocopying, color and black and white laser printing, telephone, libraries, internet access and email.
Clemson University students are always on the run. In the student lounge they can grab a quick snack or soda from the vending machines or just sit and relax before class begins.
