Eleven Cyclone Engineering students will share their hands-on research experience with peers from across the country at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research. The annual event, which takes place April 11-13 at Kennesaw State University in George, is the largest undergrad research conference in the nation, with 4,000 students in attendance and featuring networking, professional development and one of the largest graduate school fairs in the U.S.
Cyclone Engineering undergraduates will present research posters at the Iowa Statehouse at the 14th annual Research in the Capitol event on April 1. Research in the Capitol highlights the important research being conducted by undergraduate students across the state. Students will interact with elected officials, university administrators and news media, discussing the impact their research could have on Iowa, the nation and the world.
The Boeing Company made a $6 million commitment to Iowa State University that will enhance the educational experience for all students at Iowa State, inspire innovation on the university’s campus, and support engineering students interested in research. A significant portion of Boeing’s gift will support construction of the Student Innovation Center, the approximately 140,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building that will serve as the hub on campus for hands-on projects where students can collaborate across a wide range of disciplines.
Ten Iowa State University engineering undergraduate students will showcase their research at the 13th annual Research in the Capitol event on April 3.
Dozens of College of Engineering students gave detailed presentations at a symposium on April 15, on topics ranging from “bio-rubber” made from vegetable oils to preventing ice formation on paved surfaces. The Symposium on Undergraduate Research & Creative Expression allows students in all colleges to share their research with peers, mentors and other members of …Continue reading “Students showcase work at research symposium”

Written by Jens Manuel Krogstad See the original article on the Des Moines Register website Drones will one day dot Iowa’s skies, saving lives and improving the environment one unmanned flight at a time, dreamers at Iowa State University say. ISU students who showed off their creations last week on campus have good reason to …Continue reading “These ISU drones wouldn’t harm a fly”
For Christian Tormos, working in a research laboratory is second nature. Actively participating in research projects since his freshman year, Tormos, now a senior in chemical and biological engineering (CBE), is investigating a treatment for acute mechanical damage (AMD) that can to occur to cartilage and lead to post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA), a disorder that occurs …Continue reading “Undergraduate enhances lessons with research, explores bioengineering”
Three chemical engineering students are getting a sneak peak into hands-on research as undergraduate research assistants. Thanks to an undergraduate research opportunity, Katelyn Dahlke, Scott Meester, and Drew Sikkema are running experiments on polymer micro-emulsions under the guidance of Jennifer O’Donnell, assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering. Dahlke, a sophomore, first heard about undergraduate …Continue reading “Undergraduate researchers love the lab”
