“When I heard the ISU Cyclone Marching Band practicing during my first tour of campus, I just immediately fell in love. I knew I wanted to come to Iowa State and be in the band and be a part of all of it.
And, lucky for me, because I always planned to major in engineering, Iowa State is a great band school and a great engineering school.”
Samarjit Das (’10 PhD electrical engineering) is the 2022 recipient of Cyclone Engineering’s Young Alumni Award.
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.
Rizia Bardhan made a fist with one hand then covered it with her other hand, like a baseball player catching a ball in the web of a fielder’s glove.
The fist represents a special nanocarrier filled with medicine, said the Iowa State University associate professor of chemical and biological engineering. The other hand represents a cell working out whether to catch that nanoparticle then take it, drugs and all, across its protective membrane into its interior.
A new cybersecurity faculty fellows program has been created within the College of Engineering to equip students with cybersecurity concepts. An inaugural cohort of nine engineering faculty members spans across several departments in the college.
“The benefit of an engineering education is that, in addition to the specific subject matter, you learn the habits of self-study that will carry you through your career. In engineering you are always having to learn new material along the way, which is a very valuable skill,” said Stephen Mosher (’70 elec engr).
AMES, Iowa – This spring, Iowa State University’s Kiewit Scholars Program selected 18 students for the inaugural cohort for the Kiewit Scholars Program at Iowa State. This first group of scholars includes nine incoming freshmen and nine currently enrolled Iowa State students.
Starting this fall, Mohammad Tayeb Al Qaseer, currently a research associate professor, will move into the appointment of a tenure-track associate professor for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE). Al Qaseer brings extensive experience and research to the department.

Solar panels and wind turbines, now projected to produce 44% of America’s electricity by 2050, present cybersecurity challenges.
When the power grid goes down, there’s a step-by-step recovery process – a “blackstart” that up to now has depended on power from gas or hydro turbines spinning away inside a power plant.
Joyce Lai, electrical engineering, is the spring 2022 student marshal, representing the College of Engineering at university commencement.
