Celebrating Women’s History Month this March, Iowa State University Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering is highlighting past, present and future women in engineering. Sadie Brockett is a senior in Construction Engineering and the President of the Associated General Contractors of America, Iowa State Chapter. Growing up around construction engineering influenced her initial interest, but her passion and skills have allowed her to flourish in the field and her education.
Faculty in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) are developing a new program that will provide students with the knowledge and skills to pursue careers in the U.S. Navy and adjacent paths. A group of IMSE researchers recently received a $520,000 grant from the Office of Naval Research’s STEM Education and Workforce Program to establish the Navy Engineering Analytics Program (NEAP), which they intend to eventually become a minor program administered through the IMSE department.
Gül Kremer has been named the new dean for the University of Dayton School of Engineering, starting August 1.
The CyLaunch student rocketry team is headed to Huntsville, Alabama to represent Iowa State University in the NASA Student Launch Competition – and you can help them on their way.
One of only three students in the College of Engineering, Iowa State University Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering senior Hannah Jeffrey received the College of Engineering Dean’s Student Leadership Award. This award is known for ‘recognizing outstanding leadership by undergraduate engineering students during their junior or senior years,’ and for students who ‘exhibit exemplary leadership in a broader arena than a single department or student organization.’
W. Samuel Easterling, James L. and Katherine S. Melsa Dean of Engineering, and Onur Avci, research assistant professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering, are members of a research team investigating modular steel plate floor framing and diaphragm systems in steel building structures. The new project is funded by the Charles Pankow Foundation.

Iowa State University is showing off its state-of-the art facility designed to teach students the process and history of making beer.
With over 600,000 bridges in the United States, bridge safety and longevity is critical to safe transportation in America. By mandate, each bridge is evaluated at least every two years through a process called ‘bridge load rating,’ testing things like endurance and deterioration. But when considering the work put in to inspect every single bridge in the U.S. every two years, bridge load rating as we know it is very labor intensive and potentially costly.
It was pretty much love at first sight for Larry Pithan and Pam Stoll, though even they admit it is difficult to pinpoint when exactly that “first sight” occurred.
This year, four alumni are be inducted into the Hall of Fame, and nine are being inducted as Distinguished Alumni.
When mechanical engineering (ME) senior Nathan Stoufer walks across the commencement stage at the end of the semester, he will be following a legacy that his family established more than a century ago.
Celebrating Women’s History Month this March, Iowa State University Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering is highlighting past, present and future women in engineering. Lauren Bockholt, a Senior Project Engineer at Ryan Companies, is an Iowa State Alumni graduating with her bachelor’s in construction engineering (ConE) in 2017 and her master’s in structural engineering in 2018. She has always been structurally minded and has been making architects’ visions a reality in the field in her career.
Twelve Iowa State University graduate students have been selected to receive $120,000 in Brown Graduate Fellowship Program funding to support strategic university research over the next year.
Even in his free time, one Cyclone engineer is constantly approaching things with an engineering mindset.
