“The engineering department is committed to graduating practice-ready engineers who have been given every opportunity to practice their technical training and develop the broader skills needed to apply that training in the workplace. By the time I graduated, I was already working in my chosen field as a civil engineer and had received an offer to stay on with the company after graduation.”
“Almost all of my professors have current hands on projects in their field that help you understand the real world side of the agriculture industry.”
“It’s really hard for undergraduates to get research opportunities at other universities. If you do research, often you can’t do other things. Whereas at ASU, they want you to do research; they want you to branch out; they want you to ask questions and push yourself.”
“I had Dr. Dick Apronti for my engineering graphics class, and he showed me the beginning steps of solidworks, which is an engineering design program. Off that foundation, I was able to use it in California and grow in my solidworks experience.”
