Deep Orange: Clemson University's Accelerated Concept Development Program
A 2-Year Masters Degree Program for Automotive Engineering Students
Deep Orange is a framework within Clemson University’s Department of Automotive Engineering that immerses graduate students into the world of a future OEM and/or supplier. Working collaboratively, students, multi-disciplinary faculty, and participating industry partners focus on producing a new vehicle prototype each year.
Each project incorporates integrating breakthrough product innovations and new processes – providing the automotive engineering students with hands-on experience in vehicle design, engineering, prototyping and production from the time they enter into the academic program until graduation.
Founded in 2007, the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) is an advanced-technology research campus where education, research, and economic development collaborate to create a global venue for the automotive industry. CU-ICAR is home to the nation’s only graduate Department of Automotive Engineering.
