More than 27,000 students study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) at ASU with the widest range of choices available, from psychology and computer sciences to human origins, sustainability and space exploration. ASU students work side-by-side with distinguished faculty in advanced research projects focused on the challenges of today’s society, as well as projects that advance basic inquiry-based research. Students' intellectual growth is nurtured through close-knit research communities that encourage them to share their challenges and experiences with like-minded peers.

As a Research I university, ASU incorporates intellectual fusion with an accent on teamwork to power interdisciplinary world-class research institutes, such as the Biodesign Institute; the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute for Sustainability; and the Institute for the Future of Innovation in Society. These institutes are among dozens focused on today’s societal needs, such as creating new vaccines for developing countries, offsetting loss of biodiversity, addressing climate change, need for alternative energies and creating culturally-informed approaches to address obesity, urban growth and the spread of infectious disease. ASU’s research centers and initiatives provide Arizona and the world a vital resource for cutting-edge technology, an engine for redefining research and discovery and an avenue for contributing scientific and policy expertise to the areas of greatest human need.
