Clarkson has developed a modern, continuously updated computer network available to all students and faculty for both teaching and research. Computational research in many areas of science and engineering is encouraged through Clarkson's emphasis on multidisciplinary projects at all levels. Software is available for mathematics, statistics, data analysis, graphics design, simulation/modeling, document preparation, multimedia development, and relational database management/design. Hardware includes Windows and Linux/Unix based networks, and advanced computing facilities such as clusters and distributed computing. Clarkson is also home to several important research centers.
The Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP)
Dedicated to developing Clarkson's research and educational programs in high-technology materials processing, CAMP is focused on industrial concerns and meeting industrial needs.
Institute for a Sustainable Environment
Clarkson's Institute for a Sustainable Environment facilitates the development, promotion, and operation of environmental activities within the University and among its partners. Two of its constituent centers are:
The Center for Air Resources Engineering and Science (CARES) - Aims to provide a better and more complete scientific basis for air quality management in New York state.
Environmental Manufacturing Management (EVMM) - a new paradigm of graduate education and research that explores innovative solutions to industrial problems involving systems analysis, product and process redesign, and the emerging concept of sustainability.
