Research Centers

In this Section

One of the great strengths of Clarkson’s undergraduate programs in engineering is the emphasis on teamwork. Clarkson professors also know that working with others is an important and powerful research strategy. Clarkson is home to several specialized research centers, and chemical engineering faculty play important roles in many of these centers.

Center for Advanced Materials Processing—CAMP

CAMP is one of the top centers in the nation for advanced materials processing. The center works closely with industry to develop and provide the technologies industries need. CAMP is one of New York State’s 15 Centers for Advanced Technology (CATs).

Chemical engineering faculty associated with CAMP include: S. V. Babu (Director), Gregory Campbell, Phillip Hopke, Roshan Jachuck, Sitaraman Krishnan, John McLaughlin, Don Rasmussen, R. Shankar Subramanian, Ian Suni, and William Wilcox.

Center for Air Resources Engineering and Science—CARES

The CARES center studies air quality management, seeking a deeper understanding of indoor and outdoor air pollution and its effects, as well as developing better methods of improving air quality. CARES and 10 other research organizations make up the New York STAR Center for Environmental Quality Systems, a leading center of environmental research.

Chemical engineering faculty associated with CARES include: Phillip Hopke (Director), John McLaughlin, and Raghunathan Rengaswamy.

Center for Rehabilitation Engineering, Science, & Technology

CREST brings several disciplines together to study disability and treatments, devices, and strategies to remediate it. Collaborators in the center include all four departments of the Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering, as well as the departments of physics, health sciences, psychology, and many others. The center also works with the Good Shepherd Hospital in Allentown and the Syracuse VA Medical Center.

Chemical engineering faculty associated with CREST include: Ian Suni, Ruth Baltus, R. Shankar Subramanian, and Don Rasmussen.

The Institute for a Sustainable Environment—ISE

ISE is the home of Clarkson’s undergraduate and graduate programs in environment-related studies (such as environmental engineering), research initiatives in environmental fields, and outreach programs. These outreach programs range from partnerships in which Clarkson students teach elementary through high school students about environmental concerns to training courses for hazardous waste site workers.

Chemical engineering faculty associated with ISE include: Ruth Baltus, Phillip Hopke, Roshan Jachuck, John McLaughlin, Raghunathan Rengaswamy, and Ian Suni.
