School Description

Clarkson University was founded in 1896 as a memorial to Thomas S. Clarkson, a successful entrepreneur and Northern New York businessman. The University was initially known as Thomas S. Clarkson Memorial School of Technology but in 1913, as a result of an amendment in the charter the name was changed to the Thomas S. Clarkson Memorial College of Technology. On February 1, 2016, Union Graduate College merged into Clarkson University and became Clarkson’s Capital Region Campus serving as a hub for graduate and professional program admissions.  

Today, Clarkson is a nationally recognised research university for undergraduates also offering select graduate programs directed toward the world’s pressing issues. With 261 full-time teacher-scholars engaged in world-class research, Clarkson has developed an international reputation in the fields of Advanced Materials Science, Biotechnology, Environment & Energy, Entrepreneurship and Global Supply Chain Management.

            1994-1996, Bachelor's Degree, Computer Science and Technical Communication

            Recommend Clarkson University for CS & TC ProgramsYI recommend Clarkson University's Computer Science and Technical Communication programs, which is what I double majored in while I was attending there. Clarkson University is known for its engineering programs, but it also has very strong Computer Science and Technical Communication programs that provide much hands on experience before graduation so as to help in the transition to full time employment a smooth one. It also has several extra-curricular activities and clubs that one can get involved with in order to broaden one's horizons while having some fun and learning various leadership skills along the way. My experience with and at Clarkson University was positive.

            The Epitome of Education in the United StatesYYYI am an Alumini of Clarkson for the year 2008 in a Masters Program. This school is an excellent place for learning having a very good reputition in New York as well as United States. It has very good programs, unmatched assistance to students in all forms may it be Financial aid (RA, TA, etc). The staff at the School really means to teach its students with utmost responsibility and humility which is a class in itself. They are always there for you. The school also has connections to International libraries and there is no limitation to access to technical Publications. The laboratories, workshops in all fields are robust and well contained. The eating arenas, the Ice Hockey are all noteworthy. These remain as cherished memories of all clarksoniites. Another worthy appreciation lies in the fact that even in times of recession in 2007 - 2008 period, the university stood in very strong financial standing (awarding financial aid) even as rest of the country was just Managing.The School is an Epitome of learning and I highly recommend having an educational career here
