While he could have just spent his summer in the comfort of an air-conditioned lab, mechanical engineering (ME) graduate student Nick Schnoebelen decided to brave the heat and trek more than 450 miles across Iowa’s northern terrain on his bike. Schnoebelen, a M.S. student in ME, recently completed his fourth full RAGBRAI route.
Though he has spent the past quarter century in California, one mechanical engineering (ME) alum considers himself a “Midwestern boy” at heart and he attributes that to the critical role that Iowa State University played in his professional development.
When John Blichmann was a student at Iowa State University in the late 1980s, there was no formal course on how to brew beer. More than three decades later such a course does exist, and it was made possible because of Blichmann’s generosity.
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.
More than five years after completion of the Marston Hall renovation project, Iowa State University has been recognized by a top industry organization for the building’s HVAC design and operation. The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) presented IMEG Corp., an engineering design firm, with a society-level first place Technology Award in the existing educational facilities category for their involvement in the Marston project.
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.
As a teenager Ken Schoeneck, Jr. was intent on not following in his father’s footsteps by pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering (ME) from Iowa State University. However, after exploring his options he came to find that Iowa State was in fact the best fit for him.
A team of mechanical engineering researchers were able to advance their research in the field of atomization and sprays by utilizing the resources available at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory.
After completing his studies at the end of the Spring 2022 semester, Yi Zheng, a Ph.D. candidate in mechanical engineering, will spend two years serving as a postdoc research scientist for the Facebook Reality Lab in Seattle.
owa State senior All-American tight end Charlie Kolar is one of the most decorated players in Iowa State history and he solidified his place in Cyclone history by receiving the prestigious William V. Campbell Trophy tonight at the 63rd National Football Foundation Awards Dinner in Las Vegas.
A mechanical engineering (ME) alum hopes to engage the next generation of scientists and engineers by using a video game interface to teach them STEM concepts and methods.
Emily Johnson completed her Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and wind energy science, engineering, and policy this summer. This fall, she started at the University of Notre Dame as an assistant professor in the aerospace and mechanical engineering department. In her time at Iowa State, Johnson was an author on 10 publications with 101 citations, ranging …Continue reading “Emily Johnson: From Cyclone Engineering Ph.D. to Notre Dame faculty”
It can be challenging to understand technologies that most of us don’t interact with routinely. They can be complex, arcane and hard to access in our time-constricted lives. Yet, as the recent Texas energy debacle demonstrates, it’s important. One Iowa State University alum has made a career of making an important energy technology – nuclear …Continue reading “Engineering and the art of communication”
