Engineering Highlighted at March 27 Hawkeye Caucus Day

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

The UI College of Engineering was well represented at the annual Hawkeye Caucus March 27 at the State Capitol, Des Moines.  The event is held to showcase academic, research, and service programs at the UI so state legislators and other government officials have a better understanding of the university's mission.

Among the participants from the college were Project Lead the Way, FIRST Tech Challenge, Iowa Flood Center, and the National Advanced Driving Simulator.  Also attending were Alec Scranton, engineering dean, and Larry Weber, director of IIHR--Hydroscience & Engineering.
