LETTER FROM THE DEAN

Dear Friends, Welcome! With the 2018-19 academic year completed, we have a lot of things to be thankful for in the College of Technology. Through a time of transition and my first full year as Dean, we have had many accomplishments that I would like to highlight here. We started the fall semester by kicking off the College of Technology’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. Events included a COT 50th Anniversary Dinner with Alumni and Emeritus and the Hangar Dance and the Fly-In/Cruise-In at the Indiana State University Flight Academy in the spring. Through all these events, we were able to engage several faculty, staff, alumni, and students in celebration of the College of Technology’s growth since its establishment in 1968. The first Give to Blue Day took place on March 13, 2019, and the College of Technology had 105 donors raising $27,110. Next year, Give to Blue Day will take place on March 11, 2020. We would love for you to be involved! Thank you to our corporate sponsors who have stepped up to provide opportunities to our students. FedEx has partnered with the Pro-Pilot Program offering $500,000 in scholarship money throughout the next five years. The North American Lighting Student Success Center has been established, thanks to a $75,000 donation. And we teamed up with Endress+Hauser to host the first Student Design Showcase, allowing 15 student teams to showcase their senior projects to industry partners.

Through our ongoing accreditation and external reviews, we are striving to improve the quality of our programs. We are forecasting strategic initiatives to continue the growth and development of our College with the Strategic Plan for 2019-2024: Empowering Students. Inspiring Success. One of those initiatives is to ensure the alignment of curricula to industry needs. Our newest program, the Bachelor of Science in Engineering, is rapidly growing. With this program, the College of Technology can produce students who can contribute to the demand for engineers, both regionally and nationally. I want to thank you for all your support! The College of Technology is lucky to have active student organizations and faculty engaged in contributing to its success. In the coming years, I ask that you not forget your connection to the College of Technology and encourage you to take part and give back by supporting events, activities, programs, and research, and to keep us up to date on all of your accomplishments. As our college environment is ever changing, we welcome you to stop in for a tour and provide your insight and wisdom that will benefit generations of students to come.

50TH ANNIVERSARY

COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY MARKS 50 YEARS It has been a year of celebration for the College of Technology, which marked its 50th anniversary as a college at Indiana State with events, beginning in fall 2018. The celebrations kicked off with a cookout for students, faculty and staff in September. In October, the college hosted an egg drop that allowed students and student organizations to create a cardboard device that kept the egg intact during a 40-foot fall. The Department of Built Environment constructed a float for the Blue and White Homecoming Parade and supporters of the college also gathered for a dinner to honor the future of the College of Technology. As a final celebration, the college hosted a 50th Anniversary Celebration Fly-In/Cruise-In "Flying and Cruising thru the Ages" in April at the ISU Flight Academy, where Eric Wessel, ’18, served as alumni speaker for the event. “ISU did, and has continued to, bless me with a lot of opportunities that I know I would have not gotten if I went anywhere else,” said Wessel, who received his degree in mechanical engineering technology. “Whether it be friendships, internships, life experience or career opportunities, ISU really did pave the way for me to have a successful and enjoyable future.”

APPLIED ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT | ALUMNI

“STATE TOOK ME FROM WHERE I WAS TO WHERE I WANTED TO BE.” Justin Nguyen, ’18 Major: Packaging Engineering Technology Employer: Carrier Corporation

When Justin Nguyen was missing out on internship opportunities because he didn’t have a car, Professor Brian James helped him negotiate the price for a vehicle—and nothing has stopped Nguyen since. “When a client approaches me with a project or a problem, I first find out what they need and what they want. Then, I look at their packaging and how it’s distributed and what it goes through and if I can identify any opportunities from there.”

15


APPLIED ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT | ALUMNI

INSPIRING WOMEN Dr. Kristina Lawyer knew she hit the jackpot when she found a way to pair her love of drag racing with a career in engineering. It’s an added bonus that her position as an assistant professor of the Applied Engineering and Technology Management Department also allows her to encourage young women to enter science-related fields. “I’ve been so lucky to be in communities where being a woman in a male-dominated field was encouraged. Being a woman has never hindered me in engineering. Maybe it was because growing up I was into racing, which is also male-dominated. It was just what I did and my mom was and still is a car person, too.” “It wasn’t until after I graduated from college that people asked me about being a female in engineering. Knowing that now, though, as a Females in Technology advisor I make it a point to bring girls to campus, to talk to them about engineering careers. I want them to see all of the opportunities there are for them in engineering.”

AVIATION TECHNOLOGY | STUDENT

“I THINK I’LL HAVE A STEP UP IN THE FIGHTER PILOT COMMUNITY.” Travis Eckart, ’19 Double major: Unmanned systems and aviation management Dream job: Fighter pilot

Travis Eckart started an unmanned systems business during his sophomore year at Indiana State. He’s been able to manage being a business owner, student, member of ROTC, and an airman in the Air National Guard—and even deployment. “I worked with my instructors to make sure I could complete all my classwork while I was deployed (to Afghanistan. Classes went on without me, but when I came back to Indiana State, the instructors made it very easy for me to transition.”

19


AVIATION TECHNOLOGY | FACULTY

REAL-LIFE LESSONS “My goal is to take the academic material, and mix it with actual experiences and stories to bring the lecture to life.” Richard Swindell knows everyone’s path to the cockpit is different, and his own story is just one example. Starting out as an Army infantry officer, Swindell made his way in to Army aviation to fly UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters, which led him to carve out a path to the airlines, working his way through flight instruction, small planes, big planes, props, jets, airlines and fleets, ultimately becoming a United Airlines captain. Swindell started teaching at State in fall 2017. He currently teaches air transportation, aviation safety and has added to the department’s academic offerings the last two semesters by teaching elective special topic courses in rotorcraft operations, as well as organized labor in the air transport industry. “I enjoy the classroom, as a student as well as an instructor. The privilege of teaching keeps me sharp and engaged as I continue to learn myself. But, more importantly, it allows me the opportunity to give back to the industry and profession, as well as guide and build a relationship with future professionals with whom I will share this industry with—in the cockpit itself, in the aircraft they design, in the airspace they control, or in the airport they manage.”

20


NEWS BRIEFS FedEx officials presented aviation scholarships to 20 Indiana State University students on April 10. Indiana State received a $500,000 commitment from FedEx Express last fall as part of the corporation’s $2.5 million Purple Runway Aviation Scholarship program.

BUILT ENVIRONMENT | STUDY ABROAD

OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE Built environment faculty Jennifer Hale and Andrew Payne, who also serves as chair of the department of built environment, accompanied students on a 15-day trip to the United Kingdom. Students explored design, construction, and environmental safety in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland, and Manchester, Sheffield, and London, England. They saw skyscrapers being built, safety management in the airport, and the interior design of boutique hotels and restaurants. “The department faculty feels this experience is a value to all our students because it gives them a chance to get out of the Midwest,” Payne said. “Maybe they won’t go to Europe to get a job, but maybe the experience is eye-opening enough to make students more willing to look for opportunities in places less familiar to them.” The trip is a department initiative started by Payne three years ago to give students an understanding of design, architecture, construction, and environmental safety in an international setting. In the three years since the first trip, more than two dozen students have participated in the trip, supported in-part by the university, dean’s office, and Built Environment Department The topics tend to revolve around interior design or architecture of historic buildings such as cathedrals, churches and government buildings constructed in medieval times, as well as more modern and contemporary spaces. “It’s not just about touring historic sites,” Payne said. “We’re led on some tours by architects and visit contemporary, state-of-the-art buildings as well. We see everything from large public buildings to civic buildings and small performance spaces.” 23


BUILT ENVIRONMENT | FACULTY

GOLDEN RATIO “Our department provides a studio culture, in that students get to know their professors.” Azizi Arrington-Bey can hardly remember a time she didn’t want to be an architect. “I was that kid who would always be playing with Legos or drawing something. My uncle worked at NASA as an architect, and he served as my mentor and inspiration, giving me books and so much of my library now is from him,” said Arrington-Bey, associate professor and coordinator of State’s interior architecture design program. “He never passed his licensing exams, though, so when I passed mine, I sent him a copy of my license. He still has it hanging up.” An Ohio native, Arrington-Bey joined Indiana State’s department of built environment in 2011. She teaches all of the interior architecture design program’s computer classes, construction and detailing, one studio for second-year students and two studios for fourth-year students. “With about 100 students, we’re a small program but a growing one. When I started, there were about 40 students, and I appreciate that we have stayed a small enough program to allow me, from a student’s second year on, to get to know them on a more personal basis,” she said.

24


NEWS BRIEFS Six Built Environment students participated in a design competition called New Builder’s by University of Cincinnati on February 21.

Andrew Payne and Jen Hale took 54 interior architecture design students and architectural engineering technology students to Chicago on March 15 to visit the Merchandise Mart and tour a 60-story building by Walsh Construction.

ELECTRONICS AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY | STUDENT

“INDIANA STATE… APPEALED TO ME BECAUSE I WAS LOOKING FOR A MORE ENGAGING LEARNING EXPERIENCE.” Ben Bequette, ’20 Major: Computer engineering technology, minors in automation and control engineering technology and electrical engineering technology Dream job: Automation or robotics

Ben Bequette of Edwardsville, Illinois, gained a lot of experience as a research assistant to Dr. Jared Wuerzburger. They worked on a project making distance learning more practical and cost effective by adding element of virtual reality. “Indiana State’s small class sizes appealed to me because I was looking for a more engaging learning experience in which I could interact with the instructors to better understand the material. My campus experiences have prepared me for my professional career by providing me with leadership experience. Being a part of my organization have also helped me to better my communication skills, which will be essential in the workforce.”

27


ELECTRONICS AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY | FACULTY

ELECTRIFYING THE EXPERIENCE “As a graduate assistant in the program, I realized I really enjoyed time with students and being able to share learning experiences and moments with them.”

Oscar Henriquez, ’15, GR ’17 started as an instructor in 2016 after teaching a few classes while he was earning a master’s at Indiana State. The first year as faculty with the College of Technology’s department of electronics and computer engineering technology began in fall 2018. It included teaching the basic electronics course, DC circuits, digital circuits, digital logic, computer essentials, introduction to robotics and automation and the senior project class for computer engineering technology majors. About 95 percent of Henriquez’s classes provide students hands-on experiences. “I can’t sit still and just listen for an hour and I figure most of my students are that way too, so there is always something we have to do in any class I am teaching. Whether it be in the basic electronics course, where we create simple circuits to see what’s going on and read measurements to the computer essentials course, where we build a computer. Our classes are geared toward a hands-on approach employers are looking for because they don’t want to have to teach the professional how to use the equipment.”

HUMAN RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT AND PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGIES | ALUMNI

“THERE’S NO TYPICAL DAY IN HR.” Yi Chew, ’03, GR ’09 Major: Master of Human Resource Development Employer: Union Hospital, Terre Haute, IN

After coming to the U.S. as a high school foreign exchange student from China, Yi Chew earned her bachelor’s degree in restaurant management and business and administration from Indiana State. She returned to State for a master’s degree in human resource development and interned with Union Hospital before starting a full-time position post-graduation in 2009. “There’s so much variety to my job, whether it’s working on issues around recruitment, employee engagement, new employee retention, performance management or workforce satisfaction. It’s what I really like about my job. It keeps me on my toes and its fun.” The foundation she received was her education at State. “My degree gave me the knowledge and skill set to network with people, especially through my involvement in the Society of Human Resource Management organization I was involved with on campus when I was a student. The university is how I landed my job and it’s still giving back to me by providing a good pipeline of students I now use as HR interns at Union Hospital.”

31


HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT & PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGIES | FACULTY

MANAGER, MERCHANDISER, BUYER, OWNER Dr. Amanda Muhammad has done it all in the fashion industry. And for four years now, she has shared those experiences with Indiana State students. Muhammad is an associate professor and coordinator of the textiles, apparel, and merchandising program. “Students and instructors really get to know each other in our program, which is focused on highlighting industry needs. We bring in industry representatives to talk about their jobs and the field, and we make sure students have at least one internship before graduation to give them as many skills as possible to take with them into their careers.” Muhammad received an undergraduate degree in merchandise, retail and accounting and worked in the fashion industry before becoming an accountant. When she realized accounting wasn’t the field she wanted, she became a middle school math teacher and discovered a passion for teaching. “I got practical experience working in the industry that helped me understand what I know and believe to help students who aspire to be in the industry. I use my experiences now in my classes because I wish I’d known people when I was a student who had hands-on experience in the industry that they could have shared with me.”

COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY | COMMUNITY SERVICE

BUILDING SOLUTIONS Twenty-three third-year interior architecture design and architectural engineering technology students in Andrew Payne’s third-year design studio were divided into teams to design one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments for Westminster Village, a senior living center in Terre Haute (WVTH). In four weeks, students designed both spaces and used budgets to select finishes, fixtures, and equipment. Students did 20-minute presentations for the WVTH board, manager, marketing team, and residents. After talking to contractors, management selected two winning designs. “We do this type of project often because this is what they’ll be doing as a profession in the very near future,” Payne said. “Up until projects like this, a lot of their presentations have been to faculty and students, but this project allowed them to present to a client who could potentially spend $100,000.” A public showing of the completed projects was held in December.

PARTNERSHIPS New connections will put State’s aviation programs in the spotlight at this year’s Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting – the largest business event in the area. The College of Technology also will be incorporated into the workforce development initiative, 21st Century Talent Region designation. “Indiana State University is an invaluable resource, not only for students, but the entire West Central Indiana community,” said Kristin Craig, vice president of the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce. “Technology only continues to grow, advance and change and with the help of the College of Technology, our community can grow along with it.”
