Clarkson University's Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering recently received three grants totaling $40,000 from the DuPont company for further research and teaching efforts. DuPont Senior Research Associate Daniel Juers and Process Associate Thomas Henzler presented the check to Anthony G. Collins, acting vice-president for Academic Affairs and dean of the School of Engineeering.

Established in 1986, the Center for Advanced Materials Processing emphasizes the development of scientific and technological expertise in the field of colloids and surfaces. In 1987, CAMP was named as one of 13 Centers for Advanced Technology (CAT) by the State of New York. The Center receives $1 million from the state for annual operating expenses, and several million dollars from the government and the private sector.
