Centers and Facilities

Center for Optical Materials Science and Engineering Technologies
COMSET is an interdisciplinary research unit of the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences at Clemson University. COMSET provides an organized framework with significant centralized infrastructure for faculty having common interests to collaborate in developing advanced materials that exhibit a value-added interaction with light.

Energy Research at the Charleston Innovation Campus
The wind turbine drivetrain testing facility in North Charleston, SC will be capable of full-scale advanced testing of drivetrain systems, full nacelles, and simulation of blade forces. The facility will contain two test beds, 7.5 megawatts and 15 megawatts, with dynamic non-torque loading. The addition of a 15 MW Hardware-In-the-Loop Grid Simulator leverages the electrical infrastructure of the wind turbine drivetrain testing facility and allows wind turbine generator manufacturers to test both the mechanical and electrical characteristics of their machines in a well-controlled and calibrated environment.

Clemson Computing & Information Technology
CCIT is the primary supplier of computing and information technology services to Clemson University. CCIT also maintains an outreach program that supports the computing activities of various state and federal agencies, educational institutions and private companies.

Palmetto Cluster
Palmetto Cluster is a “condominium” style cluster developed to serve the university’s wide-ranging research needs. Designed and deployed by Clemson Computing and Information Technology's Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (ACI) group in collaboration with faculty researchers across the university, Palmetto provides a shared platform that optimizes resources for the benefit of all users.
