New Dean brings diversity to College of Technology


I arrived at ISU on August 1, 2018 to serve as the ninth dean of the College of Technology (COT). As the first female and engineering Dean of the College, I am excited to lead the COT and work closely with our faculty and staff to educate the future technologists and engineers. ISU is dedicated to teaching and the creation of knowledge while maintaining its longstanding commitment to inclusiveness, community and public service, and access to higher education. The mission of COT is to prepare students with critical thinking, creative problem solving, technical knowledge, and leadership skills that enable them with necessary tools to apply in the real world. The COT offers variety of technology and engineering programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels both on campus and online.

MET students honored by state ASME organization



(April 2018) Two mechanical engineering technology students, Nick Reth, junior, and Phillip Williams, senior, were selected as this year’s Outstanding ASME Student Members by the state organization of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers – Indiana Section (ASME). The selection was based on their significant contributions to ASME and their community through their leadership involving professional development such as industry plant tours and work associated with Caterpillar, Toyota, and Cummins. Both students also contributed significantly work with Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, Riley Hospital for Children, as well as several other community based initiatives. Nick has currently accepted an Manufacturing Engineering internship position this summer with Allison Transmission, while Phillip has just been hired full time by Great Dane Trailers as a Product Engineer. ISU students have been the recipients of this statewide recognition by ASME for the past two years.
