Nicholas Oldham, sophomore in materials engineering, was one of four Iowa State students to be chosen for the prestigious Barry Goldwater Scholarship, which is the premier undergraduate scholarship in mathematics, natural sciences and engineering in the U.S.
The sixth annual Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship college-by-college pitch off was held in March, and two Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) students won first place in the College of Engineering’s “new idea” competition.
MSE seniors Skyler Burke and Paige Wogahn started out by competing against other engineering students who created new products, winning first place for the College.
“My professors and classmates have given me something to look forward to every single day – just by being themselves. There’s no way to quantify the impact I have had on the people around me, but if it’s anywhere close to how they have influenced me, then that is something that I am very proud of.”
Dan Schechtman, Anson Marston Distinguished Professor of Engineering, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, a prestigious honor recognizing contributions to scientific research.
“Engineering like a Cyclone Engineer means being involved in the community around you. Any problem that’s worth solving requires a team of different people.”
Nicholas Oldham, sophomore in materials engineering, has been named a Goldwater Scholar, the premier undergrad scholarship in STEM.
Steve Martin has seven plaques hanging above his office windows, each commemorating an invention or co-invention, each showing off the front page of an official U.S. patent.
As you’d expect, a patent is a technical document. Just browse those plaques in Martin’s Hoover Hall office, most of them related to new glassy materials…
Started in 2019, Graduates for Advancing Professional Skills (GAPS) is an opportunity for graduate students to close the gap between academic research skills and what their future employer expects. It was born from Jiang’s desire to better equip students with real-world soft skills.
The Iowa State University Material Advantage (MA) Chapter won a Chapter of Excellence Award from the international student program at the 2022 annual Materials Science and Technology Conference held in Pittsburgh last October.
Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) senior Ricardo Ortega made history as the first ever Iowa State student to be selected to receive the prestigious Copper Club Scholarship.
Shan Jiang, associate professor in MSE, wanted a way to connect student’s innovation with entrepreneurship, all while remaining sustainable.
“You can teach a theory, but it is impossible to teach innovation,” Jiang said. “However, if you give students a problem they are engaged in, they will try their best, they will innovate on things they are passionate about. That is the challenge, combining what they learn in the classroom and using topics they are enthusiast about.”
Auliff always felt an affinity toward chemistry and physics, and after falling in love with the park-like atmosphere of Iowa State’s Central Campus on a visit during high school, he started evaluating different engineering departments. MSE was the ideal fit for him.
Vitalij Pecharsky, Ames National Laboratory Scientist and Anson Marston Distinguished Professor in Iowa State University’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering, died on Tuesday, Dec. 20, aged 68.
Shaden Tweeten is the fall 2022 outstanding senior in materials engineering.
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.
