Honors Program Newsletter: February 2021
Message From the Director
We are excited to share with you the winter edition of the Honors e-newsletter. Not only do our Honors students and faculty continue to amaze us, but our entire University community has refused to be held back by the challenges of the last year. Therefore, in this edition, we have highlighted a few of the accomplishments from across the University. I hope you enjoy reading about them.
— John Moosbrugger, Professor/Associate Dean for Academic Programs/Interim Director of Honors
Water Project Is a Winner
Congratulations to Clarkson Professor and Director of Engineering & Management Michelle Crimi ’95 and her team for receiving one of the Department of Defense’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program Project of the Year Awards! The award recognizes their work on patented horizontal wells that filter contaminated water underground.
Building a Better Luge
Funded with an NSF grant, Clarkson mechanical & aeronautical engineering professors are working with AeroWorks LLC to enhance luge sled aerodynamics. As if helping luge athletes win Olympic gold isn’t enough, the professors are hoping their methodologies can be applied in other industries to improve various vehicle designs.
National defense is more than protecting the country from external threats; it’s also safeguarding the nation from environmental threats — which is where Clarkson’s Center for Air and Aquatic Resources Engineering & Sciences (CAARES) comes in. The Department of Defense recently accredited CAARES to perform analysis for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, persistent and polluting synthetic chemical compounds.
Stanford Lauds Our Scientists
Instruction by world-class faculty is a hallmark of a Clarkson education. And we’re not the only ones to think so. In a recent report, Stanford University ranked some of Clarkson’s professors among the best scientists in the world. That’s quite a validation.
