Leading Research

Research and Scholarship
The Clarkson research enterprise drives innovation and the creation of new knowledge that directly benefits society. Our laboratories, research stations and facilities are expanding, and our expertise grows rapidly as we engineer solutions for the world’s most pressing challenges. Student and faculty work side-by-side to discover novel ways to apply their work in biotechnology, advanced materials, energy and the environment, global supply chain management and health and well-being.

Leveraging innovation through a network of corporate partners and support for entrepreneurs, a Clarkson education emphasizes the deployment of new knowledge towards developing practical, sustainable solutions to today’s problems and the commercialization of those solutions to create social and economic wealth.
