Competition, whether executed as an individual or as part of a team, gives engineering students hands-on experience in their fields and teaches strategic thinking. At Fulton, team competitions like building underwater robots, designing cars for the future or launching rockets into space also add a generous dose of fun. Put your skills to the test and show other Sun Devils and the rest of the world what you can do.
Having a few competitions under your belt will make you attractive to potential employers, too.
