The (CU-ICAR) is an advanced technology research campus where academia, industry and government organizations collaborate on automotive research. The 250-acre campus in Greenville, S.C is composed of five technology neighborhoods, each designed uniquely for optimizing an innovative and collaborative environment.
CU-ICAR's Millennium Campus is home to the Clemson University Department of Automotive Engineering, where graduate students can earn a master’s of science (M.S.) or doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in automotive engineering. The program blends intense technical study and creation of strong engineering science-based skills with an emphasis on leadership and other business acumen needed to thrive in a global economy. The hands-on, holistic approach ensures that graduates move seamlessly into employment. Ninety-three percent of the alumni are using their degrees in either the automotive industry or academia. Forty-four percent of the graduate alumni are gainfully employed in South Carolina. This a testament to the state's growing knowledge-based economy and demand for educated talent.
CU-ICAR's research portfolio is driven by industry needs. Continuous analysis of the market and feedback from industry partners, leaders and automotive companies is used to determine the focus of R&D. Based on that knowledge, the research clusters and "technology identity" of CU-ICAR is centered in the following five areas:
- Vehicular electronics
- Manufacturing and materials
- Vehicle to vehicle infrastructure
- Vehicle performance including human factors

The Partnership Office team consists of business development, real estate, marketing and partnership management functions all dedicated to making connections between automotive companies within the CU-ICARand or state ecosystem and programmatically linking automotive companies to Clemson Universities faculty and research expertise.
Awards & Recognition
The success and transferability of the CU-ICAR public/private model are already evidenced by prestigious organizations such as the National Academies of Sciences who have named it one of the five best global practices. CU-ICAR was also awarded the Association of University Research Parks Emerging Science and Technology Park Award for North America in 2009. Locally, the core successful components of the CU-ICAR model are being used as a template for development of Clemson University’s Restoration Institute (CURI) where the world’s largest wind turbine test facility is under development. The goal is to make CURI the University’s “energy campus” equally effective in improving the competitiveness of the wind energy industry as CU-ICAR is for the automotive industry.success is a journey not a destination success kid meme 11 steps to archery success 1111 marcus ave lake success 5 day frozen embryo transfer success rates alli success stories believe it: my journey of success, failure, and overcoming the odds belly overhang success stories differential reproductive success dress for success cincinnati dressed for success donations fenbendazole cancer success stories great success borat med surg success membrane sweep success rate motivate for success national honor society of leadership and success national society of leadership and success reddit pcos pregnancy success stories peloton success stories probability of success calculator secret of my success success academy success after recurrent chemical pregnancies success inspirational quotes success motivators success rice out of the bag success spell success verbs weight watchers success stories success stories 2nd iui success rate 4 success realty 450 lakeville road lake success ankle ligament surgery success rate believe it: my journey of success, failure, and overcoming the odds best days to take for success best quotation about success bible verses about success director of customer success dress for success austin dua for exam success executive success program failure to success quotes fear of success intermittent fasting success stories iui success stories ivf success keno success kidney transplant success rate life success quotes manifesting a specific person success stories membrane sweep at 39 weeks success rate metrics of success motivational success inspirational quotes ovulation pain and pregnancy success stories pcos natural treatment success stories prp hair treatment success rate purdue success factors login quotes for success rotator cuff surgery success rate shark tank success shoulder labrum surgery success rate spelling success success group international success habit success iceberg success is when preparation meets opportunity success motivated success on 2.5 mg lexapro success poster success quotes for business the secret to my success vaccine success 16/8 diet success stories aa success rate ablation for afib success rate belly overhang success stories best success quotes birth control success rate celebrate success class room for success coca-cola’s advertising strategy has been an international success because condom success rate critical success factors critical success factors crystals for success customer success specialist customer success specialist salary drake lyrics about success ek success esophageal dilation success rate evening primrose oil to induce labor success stories fresh success fresh success marketing group gcu student success center getting off lexapro success stories how does birth order impact career success i am affirmations for success increase implantation success innovative success system review iui success rates ivf success rates calculator key to success tarkov laxative weight loss success stories low fetal heart rate success stories mission success movies about success mustang success center optavia success stories p shot success rate pfizer success rate plan b success rate prayer for success prayers for success pregnancy at 44 success stories recipe for success retinal tear laser surgery success rate seven spiritual laws of success pdf singing success skin success skin success fade cream slug success standards for success login student academic success center success academy uniform success after recurrent chemical pregnancies success ce success congratulations success congratulations success criteria success criteria examples success ed login success emoji success factor login success insider success is a journey not a destination success is the sum of small efforts success plural success unlimited academy success wallpaper suited for success mlp symptoms after iui success stories synonym for success texas success academy the 10x rule the only difference between success and failure the national society of leadership and success tinder success stories tmau success stories topamax and phentermine weight loss success stories 2018 topamax and phentermine weight loss success stories 2020 what does the bible say about success what is customer success what is the key to success what is the success rate of immunotherapy 4aa embryo success rate academic success center books about success coach wooden's pyramid of success college success congratulations images for success congratulations images for success connections to success customer success manager resumes dressed for success dua for success in exam eleven rings: the soul of success fistula surgery success rate fresh success grey hair reversal success stories happiness and success quotes hsg pregnancy success stories
