3 Presentation Outline Update on Goals for 2013-2014 Financial Update
New Faculty and Staff Named Faculty Positions Patent Awards Faculty and Staff Awards

4 Goals for : UPDATES Deliver a high quality education to all of our students Hillary Kletscher, senior in biological systems engineering, and Mike Hoefer, senior in industrial engineering, are the president and vice president, respectively, of Iowa State’s Government of the Student Body. Team PrISUm won Best Mechanical Design Award and placed third overall in the American Solar Challenge. Cyclone Space Mining won the Best Design and Innovation Award during the NASA Robotic Mining Competition. Michael Solberg (BSME’14) received Iowa State’s Student Employee of the Year Award. Augustine Villa, senior in chemical engineering, was named Cargill Scholar. Cimone Wright, senior in computer engineering was one of six statewide winners of the Alliant Energy/Erroll B. Davis Jr. Achievement Award. Four Iowa State University Honors students with ties to the College of Engineering received Goldwater Scholarships: Jacob Harry, senior in aerospace engineering; William Lindemann, senior in materials science engineering and mathematics; Rachel Philiph, senior in materials science engineering; and Thomas Knief, senior in physics who does research in materials science and engineering.

5 Goals for : UPDATES Hire at least 17 new, diverse, high-quality faculty members Successful searches all with strong applicant pools Hired 22 tenure/tenure track faculty, including 6 as part of the Presidential High-Impact Initiative (4 in big data and 2 in translational health) Added 5 new lecturer positions

6 Goals for : UPDATES Develop a new model for Engineering Online to encourage growth, new pedagogical development and sustainability Collaborating across campus to provide faculty support Awarding grants for online course development (up to $9,000 per course) Developing funding model for blended/flipped course support

7 Goals for : UPDATES Increase the number of graduate students who have enrolled or accepted admission by 5% 1,200+ graduate students expected for fall 2014 Graduate research student increase initiative provides recruitment funds to increase numbers — college and departments provide funds 1st year; supported by researchers in 2nd year Accelerating Collaboration in Research Initiative provides funds to develop new ideas and/or increase collaboration not pursued by others due to lack of time or resources

8 Goals for : UPDATES Expand research portfolio and increase expenditures by 7.5% research proposal dollars submitted: $207.8M – 8.6% increase from $225.4M $207.8M $191.3M

9 Engineering Research Expenditures
$83.9 $78.5 $79.7 $74.4 $70.6

10 Goals for 2013-14: UPDATES Significant research awards include:
Renewal of Center for Biorenewables Chemical (CBiRC) Comprehensive-driven program analysis (CPA) for malware detection in Android phones In-situ, wireless, energy-harvesting soil moisture/nutrient sensors A unified framework for cyber attack-resilient power grid Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation grant to research developing new tools for the quantitative investigations of networks of plants.

11 Goals for 2013-14: UPDATES Digital Lab for Manufacturing
Create an Innovative Ecosystem Increase the innovative capacity of OEMs and their suppliers through digital integration and strategic collaboration. Commercialize Research Move ideas from TRL 4-7 through a network of physical and virtual demonstration sites. Strengthen the U.S. Economy $100B in value to OEMs per year $30B in value potential to DoD per year 75,000 jobs created in the first 5 years Source: McKinsey Global Institute and team analysis Source: McKinsey Global Institute and team analysis Source: McKinsey Global Institute and team analysis

12 Goals for 2013-14: UPDATES The Digital Lab Guiding Approach
Three Technology Focus Areas ADVANCED MANUFACTURING ENTERPRISE (AME) INTELLIGENT MACHINING (IM) ADVANCED ANALYSIS (AA) Agile and robust manufacturing strategies and integrated capabilities that dramatically reduce the cost and time of producing complex systems and parts. Integration of smart sensors and controls to enable equipment to automatically sense and understand current production environment in order to conduct “self-aware manufacturing”. Utilization of high-performance computing to model materials, products and processes to enable “design with manufacturing in mind”. OPEN SOURCE PLATFORM HUB & SPOKE MODEL DIGITAL COMMONS An open source technology system across the entire manufacturing value chain. NATIONAL NETWORK A 'hub and spoke' model, where the 'hub' will be the Digital Lab for Manufacturing based in Chicago, and the 'spokes' will be all the applied research on the manufacturing floors of our partners across the US.
