Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research

The Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) is a 250-acre (1.0 km2) automotive and motorsports research campus in Greenville, South Carolina. The facility will include a graduate school offering Master's and Doctoral degrees in automotive engineering, and offering programs focused on systems integration.

The campus also includes an Information Technology Research Center for BMW. BMW, Microsoft, IBM, and Michelin are all major corporate partners of the ICAR center. Private-sector companies that have committed so far to establishing offices and/or facilities on the campus include the Society of Automotive Engineers and The Timken Company. Plans for the campus also include a full-scale, four-vehicle capacity rolling-road model wind tunnel. The campus is expected to have 20,000 plus jobs within 20 years.[citation needed]

Recently, Ozen Engineering Incorporated announced plans to base its East Coast operations at CU-ICAR.[1]
