STEM robotics competitions are a motivator to pursue engineering for many students. But for underrepresented students, including females, the economically underprivileged and people of color, this engineering gateway isn’t always accessible.
What if all agricultural waste could be bio-based? Researchers at Iowa State University’s Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering are exploring the viability of creating more bio-based supply chains. The approach could not only inform future agricultural sector decisions, but could be used right now.
In this most recent report from students and faculty working with Engineers Without Borders (EWB), students describe their experience developing water resource systems in Ghana. They also take part in community activities like soccer games, dancing and the celebration of a new birth in Ullo.
Software designed for developing video games could enhance the speed and accuracy of particulate flow simulations.
In spring 2020, ISU ABE will attain a rare piece of equipment. An off-highway vehicle chassis dynomometer will allow researchers and industry partners to test the all-terrain abilities of anything from a four-wheeler to a combine.
Several graduate students in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE) were recently honored with Research Excellence (REX) and Teaching Excellence (TEX) awards for the fall 2019 semester. These awards are sponsored by the Iowa State University Graduate College. Honorees receive a letter of commendation from ISU President Wendy Wintersteen, a certificate of achievement, … Continue reading Chemical engineering graduate students honored for teaching, research efforts
The annual race against the clock for chemical engineering graduate students made its return in the department’s 2019 Perfect Pitch competition, and this year’s top three finishers have been announced. All chemical engineering graduate students who have completed their research progress exams (qualifiers) presented their research projects to students, faculty and staff under a strict … Continue reading Perfect Pitch prize to three in CBE
