Clemson University and GE

Clemson University President Jim Clements presents at the new Additive Manufacturing Lab in Greenville, South Carolina.

From Clemson’s main campus to Charleston, GE’s long-standing relationship with the University has resulted in a variety of programs and initiatives spanning multiple colleges. One of these programs enables Clemson students, faculty and staff to work with GE engineers at the new Additive Manufacturing Lab at GE Power’s Advanced Manufacturing Works (AMW) facility in Greenville, South Carolina.

“Our state is a leader in advanced manufacturing, and Clemson will continue to be a valuable resource for our industry partners. This state-of-the-art lab will provide our students with a unique, hands-on learning experience and better prepare them for the workforce. I am grateful to GE for providing our students with this opportunity.”
- James P. Clements, President, Clemson University
