CyberSafety During COVID-19 & Working From Home

University Professor Doug Jacobson offers insight and tips on what to be looking for, and how to avoid potentially costly and potentially dangerous mishaps online.

Coming Together at the Seams

Transporting generated electricity is much more efficient than transporting fuel stock, but it cannot yet happen from coast to coast. In this episode of Factor Analysis, we talk to Dr. James McCalley, London Professor of Power Systems Engineering to find out why, what it would take, and what Iowa State’s role is in the process.

Spanning then and now

You may have ridden across it. You’ve probably seen photos of it. Hear how one engineering alum played a role in one of Iowa’s most beloved and popular trails.

Global collaboration on food security

Moses Kalyango traveled 8,000 miles to explore solutions to a centuries-old problem to take back to his native Uganda.

From blue roofs to rebuilds: why communities can (or cannot) construct after catastrophes

A hurricane hits. You survive the storm, but your house doesn’t. And to complicate matters, you don’t have the documentation to prove the house was actually yours to begin with. What do you do? Construction engineering doctoral student Jess Talbot recently traveled to Puerto Rico, a country still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Maria back in 2017. Along with her mentor, Assistant Professor Cristina Poleacovschi, Jess studied how communities are … or are not … able to reconstruct after a catastrophic event.

Flooding Impact On Agricultural Systems

Shifting perspective, increasing diversity

It’s no secret – there is a need to engage underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. We need diversity of thought and different ways of thinking as we work on solving important, multifaceted problems. When know that adding more ideas as we begin exploring these sorts of problems means everyone is not going to …Continue reading “Shifting perspective, increasing diversity”
