Invest in ASU Engineering

Help to build a better future.

At the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, we believe that engineering is more than a discipline – it’s a mind-set, a way of looking at the world to determine how challenges can be met most efficiently, sustainably, safely and in cost-effective ways that maximize impact and benefit those we serve.  As a part of the largest engineering school in the country, our diverse faculty and students are passionate about finding innovative and entrepreneurial solutions to our most pressing challenges.

There has never been a greater opportunity for you to make a difference.  By supporting scholarships, professors and programs for engineering students, you are investing in the Fulton Schools helping advance the Fulton Difference.  Your gift can directly change lives and inspire our students and faculty to shape the future for all of us.

Your gift makes the Fulton Difference possible. Here’s how.

Student success and excellence

Nanoscale research multiplies into vast opportunities

Alexis Hocken did not have many female STEM role models to look up to growing up, so now she wants to fill that role for future generations of aspiring young scientists and engineers.

ASU’s chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers has been working for much of the past year on the race car that was put to the test against about 80 other teams from colleges and universities throughout the United States and several other countries.

 

Four students work in a Fulton Schools lab.

High-achieving Fulton Schools students go above and beyond the typical engineering curriculum in the Grand Challenge Scholars program, as they learn to be collaborative, transdisciplinary, global problem solvers. This spring, the GCSP program graduated 17 students — the largest cohort yet. These students encounter many of the Fulton Difference programs through completing requirements in research, interdisciplinary coursework, international study, entrepreneurship and service learning.

Our professors

Inventions for developing world lead to Lemelson-MIT Prize

Cody Friesen was awarded the 2019 Lemelson-MIT Prize for invention for his work addressing the need for access to fresh water and reliable energy in the developing world.

The newly opened WearTech Applied Research Center is positioning the Phoenix metropolitan area as the hub of high-impact wearable and medical technology innovation. The collaborative center brings together ASU researchers, industry and local economic partners to foster entrepreneurship and innovation in wearable technology.

 

Three people in lab attire

Assistant Professor Mariana Bertoni in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering has been awarded the Palais Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award. Bertoni’s expertise is vast. From chemical engineering and materials science to electrical engineering, she has worked in several branches of engineering throughout the evolution of her career. Bertoni’s expansive knowledge base makes her a force to be reckoned with as she envisions entirely new directions for future developments in solar energy research.

Entrepreneurship

Kern Family Foundation grant helps ASU faculty teach students how to better create value in their communities and society.

Equipping engineers with technical skills means they can build something, but shifting their mindset can mean the products and processes they build will be useful to society.

This is the goal of teaching the entrepreneurial mindset, a mission of the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network, or KEEN. KEEN is a collaboration among 38 colleges and universities, including Arizona State University, focused on preparing engineering students to create personal, economic and societal value through purposeful careers.

Fulton Schools of Engineering, has developed a wearable device that offers precise assessments of a person’s resting metabolic rate using sensor technology based on research conducted at Biodesign and was recently named an Arizona Innovation Challenge winner by the Arizona Commerce Authority.

Featured initiatives

Ensure student access and excellence

The Fulton Schools are committed to ASU’s mission of being a university that champions inclusion, one that values the contributions and nurtures the potential of people from all walks of life.

Champion student success

Students are the center of the Fulton Schools community, and they are also what make it great.

Fuel discovery, creativity and innovation

Unconventional thinking and resourceful collaboration thrive in the Fulton Schools. Why not create batteries that can fold and stretch? What if materials that make up an airplane wing could communicate with us before they fail, or even “heal” themselves? What if you could virtually see through your customers’ eyes to know what emotions they feel when looking at your product or website?

Elevate the academic enterprise

Like the catalyst in a chain reaction, faculty set off a cascade of effects that determine the quality of their programs, their school, their students and ultimately their university. The more accomplished they are, the better the students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty they attract to the Fulton Schools; the more creative their collaborations; the more external funding they receive; and the more consequential their research.
