Founded in 1889, Clemson University is the land grant university of South Carolina. It has approximately 16,600 students including about 3,600 graduate students. The College of Engineering and Science is one of the larger components with an enrollment of approximately 4,200 students. Along with Electrical and Computer Engineering, the College has engineering departments in mechanical, civil, chemical, industrial, ceramic, agricultural and biological engineering, bioengineering, general engineering and environmental systems engineering, and includes degree programs in engineering graphics, materials science and engineering and engineering mechanics.

The graduate studies and research programs include a spectrum of activity reflecting the interests and expertise of the faculty. Particularly noteworthy across the faculty are the breadth of education, the balance between experience and youth, the record of recent publications, and the research funding obtained in recent years. The 34 full-time faculty members include seven IEEE fellows, one endowed chair and six named professorships. Current focus areas of research include Communications/DSP, Computer Communications, Computer Systems Architecture, Controls/Robotics, Electronics, Electromagnetics, and Power.

Research programs and laboratories include the Center for Semiconductor Device Reliability Research (CSDRR), the Computational Electromagnetics Program, the CU Electrical Power Research Association (CUEPRA), the Image Processing and Artificial Intelligence Research Laboratory, the Instruction Level Parallelism Laboratory, the Parallel Architecture Research Laboratory, the Power Quality and Industrial Applications Laboratory, the Radar Systems Laboratory, the Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory, the Software Standards and Technology Laboratory, the Speech Processing Laboratory, and the Wireless Communications Program. The Department occupies over 20,000 square feet of research space with approximately 9,000 square feet located in the new Fluor Daniel Engineering and Innovation Building. The College of Engineering's computer ethernet based network including Sun workstations, DEC workstations, and PC based workstations serves as the foundation for course computing needs as well as a backbone of computing support for the research program. In addition throughout the ECE Department there are a variety of workstations and dedicated computers maintained in the various research laboratories.
