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.
Jacob Foster is the spring 2022 outstanding senior in cyber security engineering.
Augusto Menezes Savaris is the spring 2022 outstanding senior in computer engineering.
Henry Duwe, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering (EcpE), has been selected for a 2022 National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) award for his project “Toward Dependable Intelligent Computing on Batteryless Intermittent Devices.”
The Board of Regents, State of Iowa has approved formation of the new Center for Wireless, Communities and Innovation (WiCI) at Iowa State University. The mission of the WiCI Center is to advance the frontier of wireless and applications as well as the platforms and practice of research, education, innovation and community empowerment.
Sarah A. Rajala, former dean of the Iowa State University College of Engineering, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, one of the highest professional recognitions in engineering. Rajala is being honored for “innovations in engineering education: outcomes assessment, greater participation and retention of women in engineering, and an enhanced global community.”
If “What I Did This Summer” essays were still a thing in school, the Department of Aerospace Engineering Spaceflight Operations Workshop would offer some great inspiration.
And while those selected for this year’s edition may or may not be writing essays about it later, it will give them something even more valuable: a new way of looking at the world and handling challenges – from an “operational” standpoint.
The application period for the two-week experience, set for August 2-14, 2022, is now open. As always, it will depart from the typical college classroom experience, to engage students in hands-on activities to learn planning, execution, and teamwork while transforming their thought processes to be more operationally centered.
Zhaoyu Wang, a former Harpole-Pentair Assistant Professor and currently the Northrop Grumman Associate Professor in electrical and computer engineering, knows America’s aging power grids are not prepared for the peril posed by climate change and cyberattacks. It’s one of America’s most pressing energy and infrastructure issues, for which Wang is seeking solutions through Department of Energy-funded research on microgrids.
CCEE professor In-Ho Cho has just been issued a United States Patent in collaboration with ISU’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) for a multidisciplinary, microsoft robotic device controlled through air.
