At Clarkson, our undergraduate and graduate program prepares students for tomorrow’s challenges in two distinctive ways. First, our curriculum is team-based and interdisciplinary, just like today’s workplace. Since engineers don’t work in isolation, we don’t believe they should learn in isolation either. Second, we emphasize the development of technology that serves humanity. We don’t pursue engineering for the sake of engineering. We encourage students to consider the social consequences of projects by looking at the economics, ethics and environmental impact of every engineering decision.
At Clarkson University innovation and collaboration are part of our institutional identity and “Technology Serving Humanity” is our engineering school tagline. We look forward to partnering with other KEEN universities to advance undergraduate engineering educations by instilling the entrepreneurial mindset in our students through the adoption of curricular innovation and best practices.

Clarkson University has modified thirteen 3M Breath Easy and six 3M Air Mate Positive Air Pressure Respirators (PAPRs) at the request of our local hospital to protect front line healthcare workers battling COVID-19.
The hospital did not have enough working batteries or battery chargers to run their PAPRs 24/7. We modified the units to operate from USB batteries allowing them to be used continuously on a single charge for a 12 hour shift.
We are now doing modifications for two other regional hospitals.
The modification is simple and inexpensive. We are sharing our experience in hope that other universities in the KEEN network may take advantage of our work to help their local heathcare providers use their 3M PAPRs more effectively.
