Alipour recently received stage one of a two-stage grant to develop a digital infrastructure tool that can support electrical infrastructure, titled “Electric Network Disaster Mitigation for Utilities in Rural Environment (ENDURE).” This grant is a part of the CIVIC Innovation Challenge, funded by National Science Foundation in collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The CIVIC Innovation Challenge works to “lay the foundation for a broader and more fluid exchange of research.”
Being able to measure residue cover from satellite imagery is a long-term challenge that’s still a work in progress, but researchers are making headway.
Once a student pursuing a master’s degree in the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, Chad Dolphin had no idea that in a few years he would become an assistant teaching professor in ABE. But his passion for teaching was apparent to his mentors from the beginning, and never went unnoticed.
The comment, “So, tell me about your research!” will be easier to field for CBE’s graduate students who took part in this year’s Perfect Pitch competition. The students once again faced a 90-second time limit (with the aid of one PowerPoint slide) in presenting an “elevator speech” of what their research is all about.
Engineers at Iowa State University are starting a project to normalize and accelerate water reuse for rural communities. Water reuse is already implemented in small ways across the nation, especially in urban areas, but society still tends to turn heads at the thought of drinking what used to be “unusable” water.
Marissa Recker transferred to Iowa State at the beginning of her junior year to major in civil engineering. She found a community in her classes and clubs – and that employers are eager to hire Cyclone Engineers.
The Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE) has partnered with Team Neutrino, a first robotics competition team for students by helping them provide classroom space to film their educational television show “Full STEAM Ahead.”
Five Cyclone Engineers will receive College of Engineering alumni awards at the ISU Alumni Association Honors and Awards Ceremony.
Ani Yam (’22 industrial engineering) loves to create connections and community – and what brings people together more than delicious food? So after getting a taste of the food industry in a summer internship, Yam is now a manufacturing and engineering associate at General Mills.
This past summer Adam Eichhorn, who just started his senior year in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), was able to visit Japan as a part of a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) where he was able to gain valuable research experience before he moves on to graduate school.
One of only twelve awardees at Iowa State University, and housed in the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, microbiology student Grace Carey received the $10,000 prestigious Brown Graduate Fellowship. Carey’s path to where she is today, a third-year, successful doctoral student, was a hard-earned path paved with her drive for environmental justice and passion for sustainable agriculture.
Guiping Hu, associate professor of industrial and manufacturing systems engineering, has been named a fellow in the fourth cohort of the IAspire Leadership Academy.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Sept. 23, 2022, marking the beginning of construction on the new Therkildsen Industrial Engineering building.
With a passion for research in several facets of construction engineering, assistant professor Yunjeong “Leah” Mo joined the Iowa State University Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering (CCEE) this fall.
Starting this fall, Cheng Wang is a new professor for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE). Wang brings extensive experience and research to the department. The following Q and A is a chance to get to know Wang as the semester begins.
