“I’m striving to have my research be very practical and beneficial for the industry, so that when other producers are reading the results of our research, they’re really not questioning, ‘Is this even similar to what my operation is going to be like for conditions?’ ” Ben Smith, a graduate student in agricultural and biosystems engineering, says.
If what is old is new again, is there a way to make ancient grains new to 21st-century taste buds?
Kurt Rosentrater, executive director of the Distillers Grains Technology Council and associate professor at Iowa State University’s Department of Agricultural and Biological Systems Engineering (ISU ABE) is exploring this question with help from a group of six students from southern France.
Iowa State University (ISU) co-hosted the second annual International Interactive Symposium on Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in Albany, New York, from June 2-5.
Agricultural and biosystems engineering professor announces his departure from Iowa State University (ISU) after outstanding career After 50 years at ISU, University Professor Carl Bern has announced his retirement.

Alice Alipour, an assistant professor of civil engineering at Iowa State University, is leading a team of researchers to examine the effects of flooding on the infrastructures of communities. “With infrastructure systems, those are pretty much our lifeline,” Alipour said. “This includes transportation and power grid lines. We also consider community resilience and also consider buildings as a part of this infrastructure.”
