Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP)

In this Section

The Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) at Clarkson University is dedicated to developing Clarkson's research and educational programs in high-technology materials processing and is focused on industrial concerns and meeting industrial needs. CAMP's mandate is to develop innovations in advanced materials processing and to transfer this technology to business and industry. The Center is built on Clarkson's recognized expertise in colloid and surface science and fine particle technology. It receives support from the New York State Foundation for Science,Technology and Innovation for research and operating expenses as one of 15 Centers for Advanced Technology (CATs). In addition, CAMP-related work receives several million dollars each year from the federal government and private industry.

CAMP’s vision is to be the best resource available to companies in NY State and elsewhere in Advanced Materials and their Processing.

CAMP's mission is to perform innovative research and conduct educational efforts on the synthesis and processing of advanced materials of value to industry.

Colloid and Surface Science

CAMP materials research efforts are centered on the production, modification and conversion of matter for which "small" particles, colloidal media and/or surfaces play an important role in the processing and/or properties of the final product.

Technology Transfer

CAMP facilitates materials-related research collaborations with industry and effective dissemination of the research results.

Education and Training

CAMP conducts focused materials educational activities, supports the training of materials research personnel, and interacts with the materials-related components.
