The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) Student Advisory Committee (SAC) at Iowa State University is a group of electrical, computer, software, and cyber security engineering students currently enrolled in an undergraduate EE, CprE, Cyb E, or SE program of study at Iowa State who are interested in the vitality of the ECpE department. The committee is a consultant to the ECpE department chair to strengthen the department’s undergraduate academic and outreach programs, improve its facilities usage for undergraduate teaching and research, and expand its available support to current students and future alumni. SAC members actively participate in the continual assessment of the department’s progress and the development of policies and activities pertaining to the undergraduate experience in the department.
SAC members actively assist in recruiting new members, as well. The committee serves at the discretion of the ECpE department chair.

Ryan Flaskamp is a freshman in Electrical Engineering from Carpentersville, Illinois. Ryan currently serves as the Vice President of the Iowa State University branch of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and he has worked as an Electrical Product Design Intern at Coilcraft Inc. over the past summer. Ryan chose to pursue Electrical Engineering because of his experiences with his grandfather, who is an electrician, throughout his youth, and his work with robotics throughout high school. Outside of class, he enjoys spending quality time with friends, being outdoors, fishing, skiing, and anything adventurous.
Evan Gossling is majoring in Computer Engineering. He has interests in networking and 5G (and beyond) connectivity. He was an intern for RSM as an App Dev and will be a graduate student at Iowa State as part of the WiCi Center.
Jonathan Tan is a junior in Computer Engineering and currently serves as the PR chair of IEEE-HKN Nu Chapter; he is also a TA for CPRE 288. Growing up, Jonathan has always been curious about how a computer processor is built out of sand (Silicon) and how it works to process data. This curiosity is the driving reason why he chose to pursue Computer Engineering. His goal is to enter the Concurrent MS program to learn more about the inner workings of a processor and, one day, join a company specializing in computer chip design.
Rachel Schnepf is a Senior in Computer Engineering from Omaha, Nebraska. She is Engineering Student Council Co-President and Grace Hopper Chair for Digital Women. Rachel has worked as a software engineering intern and Human Machine Interface Intern. Rachel loves to meet with her other peers to learn how to improve Iowa State’s Engineering Experience. Outside of school and work, Rachel enjoys spending her time reading, watching football and basketball (Go Cyclones), cooking/baking, and hanging out with friends and family.
Tanvi is a junior in Computer Engineering here at Iowa State and comes from Pune, India. She chose Computer Engineering as it has usage in various fields, and she wishes to contribute as much as possible. She is an international student who came to the USA after finishing high school and values and treasures this experience.
Gregory Ling is currently working on his concurrent M.S. in Computer Engineering. He’s software manager for the ISU Solar Car club, and enjoys embedded programming, books, and programming.

I am a Junior Cyber Security Engineer at Iowa State University focusing on Defensive Security. I have completed a TDP internship with United Health Group, working on an automation project for the Enterprise Security Team. Additionally, I am the VP of Events for the Engineering Student Council and an active member of the Information Assurance Group and STEM Scholars. These experiences have honed my communication, time management, and adaptability skills. I am proficient in multiple technologies and programming languages such as Python, Java, Linux, Metasploit, and Security Networking. The result has made me a flexible learner and a big advocate for trying new and unfamiliar things.
Lydia McCleary is a senior in Software Engineering from Des Moines, Iowa. Lydia was elected President of Digital Women in April 2023 and also works as a Software Engineering Peer Mentor.
