The University of Iowa College of Engineering Contributions Toward the State of Iowa's Economic Development Initiatives

In recent years, the foundation of the U.S. economy has shifted focus from traditional manufacturing to a knowledge-based economy. The New Economy refers to the competitive environment in which the pace of technology development and commercialization has dramatically accelerated.

The University of Iowa College of Engineering participates energetically in three major Iowa technical industry clusters with faculty teaching and research excellence, and key College and University research centers, institutes, and laboratories.




New companies, established on Iowa-based research, flourish in a healthy Midwestern business climate. Prospects are strong for those now incubating in the growth-oriented environment of the University's Technology Innovation Center (TIC) and University of Iowa Research Park.
