The National Science Foundation awarded four Cyclone Engineers with their prestigious Graduate Research Fellowship.
Dohgyu Hwang, a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in materials science and engineering, is the recipient of an Iowa State University Research Excellence Award and a Brown Fellowship.
Matthew Swift (‘18 mat sci engr & physics) and Chris Whitmore (’16 mat sci engr) had a Cyclone Engineering experience that propelled them to jobs revolutionizing space technology at SpaceX. Both Swift and Whitmore say their hands-on Iowa State education – in and out of the classroom – was a key to their success.
Nine College of Engineering students were selected as members of Iowa State’s most prestigious honorary, Cardinal Key Honor Society.
