Why Iowa State?
Nothing adventured. Nothing gained.
An Iowa State University adventure is for those who want to create, share, and apply knowledge to make the world a better place.
Learn and work alongside leading scholars who are conquering some of the world’s biggest challenges — feeding the hungry, finding alternative fuels, and revolutionizing manufacturing.
Known worldwide for excellence in science and technology, discovery, and innovation, Iowa State is home to the world’s first electronic digital computer, tornado simulator, high-resolution virtual reality lab, and much more!
We’re a large university with a small feel. While we’re located in America’s Heartland, a degree from here can take you anywhere.
