The Carroll A. Campbell Jr. Graduate Engineering Center

 

Anchoring the International Center for Automotive Research campus will be the Carroll A. Campbell Jr. Graduate Engineering Center, named for the former governor whose leadership helped create an automotive industry cluster by bringing BMW to South Carolina a decade ago.


Last year, BMW donated $10 million to Clemson to help endow the center. Clemson plans to recruit nine faculty and up to 50 graduate students. These faculty will join an established and nationally recognized core group of Clemson faculty who have been leaders in automotive and motorsports research and education for 15 years.


The Campbell Graduate Engineering Center will focus on systems integration, addressing a growing challenge in the automotive industry as car components become increasingly computerized. Graduates will be prepared to meet the engineering and management challenges of designing and building a highly complex modern automobile in which mechanical, electrical and digital technologies work together.
