Clarkson University Joins Syracuse Industrial Assessment Center to Offer Free Energy Services to Industry
As part of a recent award by the U.S. Department of Energy, Clarkson University will become a satellite of the Syracuse University Industrial Assessment Center.
Syracuse University’s L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science has received renewal of an award to continue the efforts of its DOE Industrial Assessment Center program, which trains undergraduate- and graduate-level engineering students in manufacturing efficiency to help them become the nation's next generation of industrial energy efficiency experts.
This center is being funded by the IAC Program under the U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Manufacturing Office. The center assists small and medium-sized manufacturers within New York State in evaluating their energy usage, manufacturing productivity, and waste generation, and in reducing associated costs.
The Syracuse IAC, now in its 11th fiscal year, has helped more than 200 New York manufacturers to significantly reduce their energy usage and costs. The center also provides significant funding to support graduate and undergraduate students in the pursuit of their educational goals through scholarships and stipends.
Three Clarkson University undergraduates are currently serving as interns at the Syracuse IAC Satellite Center: senior civil engineering major Daniel M. Barron of Clarence, N.Y., and junior mechanical engineering majors Michael P. DiLorenzo of Phoenix, N.Y., and Matthew S. Russell of Latham, N.Y.
Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
