Hubing named to Clemson University auto engineering chair

May 18, 2006

Clemson University has named Todd Hubing to fill the Michelin Endowed Chair in Vehicular Electronic Systems Integration at Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) in Greenville, S.C.

His appointment is the second of four endowed chairs planned for the program, and his faculty appointment is in Clemson’s department of electrical and computer engineering.

Hubing will focus his CU-ICAR research and teaching efforts on automotive engineering, specifically the integration of vehicle electronic systems.

Hubing is currently a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Missouri-Rolla.

"Michelin and Clemson recognize the importance of vehicular electronics research and are committed to being leaders in this field," says Hubing. "I am very excited about having an opportunity to help build a world premier automotive electronics research facility literally from the ground up. We’ll be doing research that will be of immediate benefit to the automotive industry as well as research to meet society’s long-term transportation needs."

Clemson is scheduled to begin its new Ph.D. degree program in automotive engineering with an emphasis on systems integration in August 2006. The M.S. program begins on the CU-ICAR campus in August 2007.
