What is FSE Summer Scholars?
  • The FSE Summer Scholars program allows incoming first-year students the opportunity to take Perspectives on Grand Challenges for Engineering (FSE 150) alongside their Universal Learner Course (ULC) for math.

Am I eligible for this program?

In order to participate in this program, students must be…

  • An incoming first-year student (Fall 2022)
  • Concurrently enrolled in ULC’s MAT 117: College Algebra OR ULC’s MAT 171: Pre-Calculus

If you are interested in the program, but do not meet these qualifications, please contact Jennifer Wong ([email protected]). 

Why should I take FSE 150 over the summer?

Taking FSE 150 will allow you to…

  • Develop an interdisciplinary understanding of the global engineering Grand Challenges that human societies face in the 21st century
  • Describe the NAE Grand Challenges themes, and learn about ongoing research in all Grand Challenge theme areas
  • Identify opportunities to create added value in the Grand Challenge areas, and apply customer focused design and an entrepreneurial mindset to conceptualize a potential future solution
  • Interpret why (and in what ways) a technology or design solution adds value from multiple perspectives (technological, sociocultural, economic, environmental, global, etc.), and describe a design solution in terms of its societal value (as well as its technical features and function)
  • Demonstrate an awareness of societal issues (e.g. sociocultural, political, economic, environmental) that influence and/or constrain engineering solutions
How does this benefit me, as a student?
  • Introduces you to the learning management system (Canvas) you will use as an ASU student
  • Already have 3 credits from FSE before your first day of classes that count as…
    • SB credit (Social-Behavioral Sciences) 
    • Honors credit for Barrett, the Honors College 
How much will this cost?

Costs of FSE 150 Course: 

  • When you enroll in your ULC FSE 150 course, you will need to pay $25 for ID verification.
  • To earn academic credit: The Universal Learner Course program allows you to convert your completed FSE 150 course to college credit. There are financial costs associated. However, the Fulton Schools will pay for the earned academic credit for each FSE Summer Scholar.

Costs of MAT 117/MAT 171 Courses:

  • There is no cost to enroll in the ULC MAT 117.
  • To earn academic credit: The Universal Learner Course program allows you to convert your completed MAT 117 or MAT 171 courses to college credit. There are financial costs associated.  However, it’s not necessary for you to earn the academic credit.  After completing the self-paced course, you can simply re-take the Math Placement Assessment to try to place into the higher MAT course.  
Is this opportunity online or in-person?

As an FSE Summer Scholar, you will take FSE 150 online via Canvas, one of the world’s fastest growing learning management systems. The platform enables students to access coursework and complete assignments on almost any device, from nearly any location around the world, whenever it’s convenient for their schedules. Canvas is the learning management system you will be using for the rest of your academic carrer at ASU, so it’s a great chance to get familiar before the first day of classes!

Is this self-paced?

This class is not self-paced, but it is asynchronous. Asynchronous learning means that the coursework can be completed any time in alignment with the student’s schedule, as long as you submit your coursework before the deadline.
