Four graduate students in the Department of Aerospace Engineering have been honored for their work with Teaching Excellence and Research Excellence Awards from Iowa State University’s Graduate College. The awards are presented each fall and spring semester to graduate students who demonstrate excellence in their scientific research or their performance in teaching.
Hamidreza Zobeiri, Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering, is the winner of the 2022 Zaffarano Prize for Graduate Student Research. Each spring semester, the Graduate College gives this honor to a graduate student with superior publishable research.
Students in I E 348: Solidification Processes had some fun as they ended the semester with a Design-Cut-Weld project.
This year, seniors Dean Woodwell, Collin Jones and Colin Kyhl built their capstone project for the Cyclone Power Pullers, an engineering club on campus designing a tractor for the ASABE International Quarter Scale Competition.
Roselynn Conrady, Ph.D. student in mechanical engineering (ME) and human computer interaction (HCI), has been accepted into the prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. She is one of just five students from Iowa State University to receive this honor. The five-year fellowship includes three years of financial support including an annual stipend of $34,000 and a cost of education allowance of $12,000 to the institution.
The Iowa Board of Regents recently approved Shan Jiang’s promotion to associate professor of materials science and engineering with tenure, effective July 1.
Two mechanical engineering (ME) students will have their opportunity to share their heart valve research on a national stage at this year’s Posters on the Hill event.
Iowa State’s student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) hosted the group’s Mid-America Regional Conference April 8 and 9 – rolling out the red carpet for students from 12 other schools and taking some top honors of its own.
Organized once every three years, the World Water Forum is an event focusing on water quality and how to make progress on global water challenges.
With an abundance of undergraduate research experience under her belt, Bella Guyll is ready to continue her studies and further advance her research as a graduate student.
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.
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.
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.
Even in his free time, one Cyclone engineer is constantly approaching things with an engineering mindset.
This semester, Iowa State University’s Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering professor Dirk Maier and doctorate student George Obeng-Akrofi hosted fellow members of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology’s Engineers Without Borders (EWB-KNUST) student organization in Kumasi, Ghana.
