Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research

I am, of course, very proud of the Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree Program we have built at Udacity, which teaches software engineers to become autonomous vehicle engineers. You should enroll!

But there are other educational institutions out there, as well, and one I keep bumping into is the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research.

CU-ICAR, as they style themselves, is a graduate school about 40 minutes up the road from the main Clemson campus, and it offers master’s and doctoral degrees in automotive engineering across a number of different specialties.

The 250 acre campus in Greenville, South Carolina, is located nearby BMW’s US manufacturing center in Spartanburg, SC, and is a great example of the type of industry-educational partnerships we engage in at Udacity.

I know very little about the Clemson program directly, and I’ve never been to Greenville, but I keep running into their graduates on autonomous vehicle teams at some of our largest hiring partners, so I thought I’d mention them.

I’ve also run into a few Clemson students who are taking the Self-Driving Car Nanodegree Program, so of course that makes me happy 🙂
