Innovation. Ideation.

Computing at Clemson offers a nationally-recognized faculty that prides itself on the quality of its teaching and a wide range of research areas. Students majoring in one of our three undergraduate degrees take a common computing core curriculum, which exposes students to a variety of programming languages (e.g., C, C++, and Java) and fundamental concepts. Each degree then layers on a different combination of additional coursework to augment the core.

James Jones and Carolyn Freeman Pellerin fondly remembered

Two retired lecturers who helped usher in the digital age by teaching computer science to Clemson University students recently died and are being fondly remembered by their colleagues. James Jones was 86 years old when he died May 4, and Carolyn Freeman Pellerin died April 14 at 73 years old.

Jones received an electrical engineering degree from Clemson in 1957 and later went to work for IBM. After retiring from the company, he returned to his alma mater to teach, mentoring more than 1,000 students in 17 years.

Pellerin received a master’s degree in math and returned to her alma mater to teach computer science for more than 20 years. She was remembered as a role model for women, who are underrepresented in computer science.
