Major leaps.
No bounds.

Leading faculty and staff are using Apple technology to power advancements across every field.

Research

Any breakthrough has the power to change the world.

Helping the world breathe easier. And cleaner.

Dr. John Volckens builds solutions to measure air pollution and improve global health.

“Apple technology helps us miniaturize our innovations, making them user friendly and affordable for everyone.”

Dr. John VolckensDirector, Center for Energy Development and HealthProfessor, Mechanical EngineeringColorado State University

MacBook Pro. All the power Dr. Volckens needs to analyze massive air quality datasets and render stunning visualizations of his findings on interactive dashboards. All at the same time.

iPhone. Dr. Volckens and his team develop custom iOS apps that serve as the user interface for his air sensors on iPhone. The apps collect hundreds of measurements, like temperature, humidity, and air quality, from anywhere in the world in real time.

”My vision is to help everyone everywhere know what’s in the air they breathe. Apple technology makes that vision a reality.”
Dr. John Volckens, Colorado State University

Forging a new, sustainable future for farming.

Brad Bergsma discovers innovative agricultural solutions that advance the global food industry.

“From controlling equipment to field management — the Apple ecosystem is at the heart of everything we do.”

Brad BergsmaInstructor, Researcher, and Chief Information OfficerNorthwest Kansas Technical College

iPad Pro. Bergsma uses apps on iPad Pro like Climate FieldView to capture, monitor, and measure all of his agriculture research data — like water irrigation and crop nutrition — from seeding to harvest.

iPhone. From the greenhouse to the field, Bergsma uses iPhone wherever he goes. The convenience and flexibility allow him to check the weather, capture images, and measure soil moisture on the fly.

Pushing the boundaries of creative expression.

Dr. Youngmoo Kim builds music technology that’s shaping the
future of live performance and entertainment.

“I seek a world that places no limits or barriers on human creativity.”

Dr. Youngmoo KimDirector, ExCITe CenterProfessor, Electrical and Computer EngineeringDrexel University

MacBook Pro. Mac easily handles pro music and visualization apps — like Logic Pro and MATLAB — to push the boundaries of Dr. Kim’s machine listening research using instruments and robots he builds himself.

iPad Pro. Dr. Kim develops iPadOS apps that bring people together to collaborate and feel connected. His Virtual‑Chorister app captures individual recordings and performances from musicians around the world to create virtual music ensembles.

Academics

Inspiration can lead to a lifetime of purpose.

Impacting society, one innovation at a time.

Dr. Ichiro Iimura is providing new opportunities for social science students to leave a positive mark on the world.

“My goal is to build career readiness for my students by empowering them with cutting-edge tools and knowledge that help them create solutions to make a difference.”

Dr. Ichiro IimuraProfessor, Faculty of Administrative StudiesChair, Division of InformaticsPrefectural University of Kumamoto

iPad Pro. Dr. Iimura and his students use iPad, Apple Pencil, and Adobe Illustrator to sketch out and storyboard ideas for an accessibility app that helps teachers communicate with non‑verbal students.

MacBook Pro. Xcode and Swift on Mac with HealthKit empower them to build a solution — an iOS app and a watchOS app that work together to capture and record students’ real-time heart rates and physical reactions during activities.

iPhone and Apple Watch. Video footage and heart rate graphs on iPhone and Apple Watch* enable teachers to instantly read a student’s reaction, better understand how they’re feeling, and adjust teaching methods.

“As an engineer, researcher, and professor, the security and stability combined with the intuitive nature of Mac make it the perfect tool to create, develop, and express ideas.”
Dr. Ichiro Iimura, Prefectural University of Kumamoto

Preparing the next generation of lifesavers.

Dr. Derek Harmon is revolutionizing the way medical students master human anatomy.

“I love watching those quintessential light bulb moments when students see the body’s brilliant architecture and start to understand how it all works.”

Dr. Derek HarmonDirector of the Anatomy Learning CenterAssociate Professor, Department of AnatomyUniversity of California San Francisco School of Medicine

iPad Pro. The Complete Anatomy app harnesses the power of interactive 3D models and augmented reality on iPad Pro, so Dr. Harmon’s students can study, experiment, and gain even more hands-on practice from anywhere.

Apple TV and AirPlay. Dr. Harmon is able to conduct live anatomy demonstrations anywhere in the lab, creating a rich, engaging experience for his students to learn — without having to crowd around one table.

“Providing my students with the most innovative tools to learn the architecture of the human body is incredibly important. Ultimately, I’m helping them save human lives.”
Dr. Derek Harmon, University of California San Francisco School of Medicine

Shifting human behavior to save the planet.

Dr. Sathya Gopalakrishnan inspires students to lead environmental change for a sustainable future.

“iPad has transformed the way I lead my classes. It gives me the freedom to engage with my students in a way I could not before.”

Dr. Sathya GopalakrishnanAssociate Professor, Department of Agricultural, Environmental and Development EconomicsThe Ohio State University

iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. Dr. Gopalakrishnan uses Explain Everything Whiteboard on iPad
to record and capture her environmental economics
lessons, break down abstract
charts and graphs, and show
her students how to solve complex mathematical problems
in real time.

Transforming artistic passions into lifelong careers.

Bradley Hughes helps musicians develop their creative potential and fulfill their dreams.

MacBook Pro. The all-in-one professional tool Hughes trusts to prepare burgeoning creators and producers for successful careers. Logic Pro on Mac serves as the foundation for his entire music and sound design curriculum. Students learn to record, edit, and mix all kinds of music with a pro-level sonic palette — and create pro-level portfolios to prepare for the music industry.

iPad Pro. When new ideas for compositions spring to mind, Hughes uses Logic Remote on iPad to play software instruments, capture recordings, and mix tracks with Multi-Touch faders — from anywhere in the room.
