Department of Auto Engineering
The Department of Automotive Engineering is part of Clemson University’s College of Engineering and Science. Currently, there are nearly 200 students pursuing graduate degrees in automotive engineering. Our diverse student body shares two things – a hunger for knowledge and a passion for the car. We are housed in the Carroll A. Campbell Jr. Graduate Engineering Center (CGEC) at the Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) campus located in Greenville, South Carolina.
Deep Orange is a framework that immerses graduate automotive engineering students into the world of a future OEM and/or supplier. Working collaboratively, students, multi-disciplinary faculty, and participating industry partners focus on producing a new vehicle prototype each year. Each project incorporates integrating breakthrough product innovations and new processes – providing the automotive engineering students with hands-on experience in vehicle design, engineering, prototyping and production from the time they enter into the academic program until graduation.
