Xiaoli Tan, professor of materials science and engineering, produced the transmission electron microscopy (TEM) image of a lead-free peirzoceramics on the cover of the August 2018 issue of MRS Bulletin.
Noble Banadda, affiliate professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering, has been awarded the 2018 Pius XI Medal by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences at the Vatican. The award recognizes Banadda, who is also chair of the Department of Agricultural and Biogystems Engineering at Markerere University in Uganda, for his outstanding scientific research.
Amy Kaleita, professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering, is part of a team that received a grant to study how well the perennial grass miscanthus performs in low-lying areas of agricultural fields that are prone to flooding. The research has the potential to identify more efficient uses of such land while also providing environmental benefits.
Cyclone Engineers will partner with University of Iowa faculty on bioscience research projects funded by a new program designed to foster collaboration between Iowa State and Iowa researchers. Projects are in the areas of antimicrobial research, vaccines and immunotherapy, brain science and medical devices.
The Iowa State College of Engineering has received a 2018 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Engineering Excellence for Veterans Award. The award recognizes the College of Engineering “as a leader in helping bridge the gap between military and civilian worlds” and commends Iowa State for supporting Veterans as they transition to their engineering education.
Seven Cyclone Engineers received national and division awards from the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) recognizing their excellence in engineering teaching and research in engineering education.
Three College of Engineering students have received the Dean’s Student Leadership Award for 2018: Natalie Hanson (biological systems engineering), Erin Mitchell (industrial and manufacturing systems engineering) and Steven De Alwis (mechanical engineering).
Iowa State University engineering students have developed a new, practical and cost-effective way to drop medical supplies into a disaster area as part of the inaugural 3M Disruptive Design Challenge last week at 3M headquarters. Their air-drop container survived a 150-foot fall and water submersion, and was successfully repurposed as a stretcher.
Seven Iowa State University College of Engineering faculty have been selected for 2018 National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER), the NSF’s most prestigious awards given to early-career faculty. The five-year awards total nearly $3.3 million and represent the first time that Iowa State’s College of Engineering has received seven CAREER awards in one year.
Seventeen Iowa State University engineering students were selected to present their research at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research.
Ten Iowa State University engineering undergraduate students will showcase their research at the 13th annual Research in the Capitol event on April 3.
College of Engineering staff were honored and recognized on March 22 at the annual Professional and Scientific Council CYtation Awards breakfast. Employees were recognized with individual or team awards for professional excellence and outstanding contributions to Iowa State.
Three Cyclone Engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, an honor among the highest distinctions in engineering. Dennis A. Muilenburg (aero engr ’86), W. Mark Saltzman (chem engr ’81) and Charles E. Sukup (agr engr ’76, M.S. ’82) are honored for their outstanding contributions to engineering research, practice or education.
Halil Ceylan’s heated pavement technology was featured on The Today Show. Watch the video to see just how quickly the heated runways can melt away snow and ice.
Two Cyclone engineers. More than 200 patents. A hands-on Iowa State learning experience that started it all. Steve Koenck (elec engr ‘73, MS ’74) and Joe Musil (mech engr ’72) met as Iowa State engineering students in 1970 when they both were working in the College of Engineering’s fabrication machine shop. “Pretty much every hour … Continue reading Steve Koenck and Joe Musil: Cyclone engineers and patent powerhouses
