Ribbon cutting ceremony

The 2017-18 senior capstone project of three civil and environmental engineering students delivered plans for a “pocket” neighborhood in Maquoketa with a goal of attracting more families to the area and providing much-needed affordable housing. The work of Tanner Schropp, Morgan Kinney, and Mayra Corona contributed to the Bear River Cottages development of 10 homes built around a shared green space.


Undergraduate student Ashley Rhodes

Ashley Rhodes, a biomedical engineering major completing a human physiology minor, is among five Iowa students to receive an Excellence in Undergraduate Research Award. As a research assistant at the Byrne Lab, Rhodes is working to optimize gas delivery to specific areas within the body, which has been shown to have therapeutic properties beneficial for wound healing, improving cancer treatments, and decreasing inflammation.
