Clarkson’s Institute for a Sustainable Environment is a hub for integrated research in healthy world solutions across Clarkson’s schools and research centers.
These include the world-class analytical capabilities in our CARES facility, material-based research with industrial partners through CAMP, energy systems with the Sustainable Energy Systems and Power Systems Centers, and modeling and computational approaches through the Clarkson Center for Complex System Science (C3S2). Our geographic location provides opportunities for research focused on the Great Lakes, Adirondack Park and great rivers (St. Lawrence and Hudson), especially through our Great Rivers Center and the Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries.
ISE faculty affiliates work with graduate and undergraduate students to conduct environmental, energy and sustainability related research. Many of these students are in ISE interdisciplinary degree programs, others are pursuing a traditional disciplinary degree. Undergraduate researchers from all over the country participate in Clarkson’s long-running NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduate (REU) program in Environmental Science and Engineering.
