Engineering and Technology

Accelerating changes to the natural environment and global society present enormous challenges to the sustainability of life as we know it. Vital systems of energy, water, communication, transportation, manufacturing, education, health care and security are subject to disruptive forces that exceed all historic precedent.

Engineering and technology faculty and students at Arizona State University are engaged in transdisciplinary research to develop innovative solutions to these vexing problems. ASU’s network of impactful discovery starts with the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and extends to integrate the transformational talent of changemaking peers and partners on our campuses, across our country and around our world.

A recognized leader in interdisciplinary, translational research, ASU-driven engineering collaborations include the U.S. Department of Energy-sponsored Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies research center, where investigators are exploring ways to sustainably convert electricity generation to meet growing demand. ASU engineers also lead the National Science Foundation-funded Center for Bio-mediated and Bio-inspired Geotechnics to apply the characteristics of natural systems to develop more resilient and sustainable civil infrastructure.

Creating solutions to complex challenges demands researchers and engineers who apply innovative perspectives, leading-edge skills, collaborative spirit and profound dedication. ASU cultivates such a community of excellence for everyone from incoming students to industry stakeholders who make meaningful progress. Join us.
