Since 1994 BMW and Upstate automotive suppliers have invested over $3 Billion and created more than 7,000 jobs in our region. The relationship between the automotive industry and the Upstate continues to grow and evolve almost daily. As a cornerstone for this cluster, BMW, the state of South Carolina, and Clemson University formed a partnership to establish a premiere automotive / motorsport research center in Greenville. The Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) is located on a 250-acre campus along I-85 in our region. CU-ICAR is home to the Clemson University Graduate Engineering Center that offers our region advanced degrees in automotive engineering and motorsport technology.
