In the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, we believe that engineering is more than a discipline — it’s a mind-set, a way of looking at the world. Students in the Fulton Schools of Engineering are part of a community of problem solvers, people who are passionate about designing and making innovative and entrepreneurial solutions. Our community has grown to 19,000 students from all 50 states and Puerto Rico and 121 countries — and the Fulton Schools have attracted a record number of incoming freshmen in each of the last five years.

We are dedicated to “the Fulton Difference,” with degree programs that combine a strong core foundation with hands-on experience; personalized advising; our innovative E2 program to welcome freshmen; top faculty, including a Nobel Laureate and members of the national academies of Engineering, Sciences and Construction; and a reputation for graduating students who are aggressively recruited by top companies or become superior candidates for graduate studies in medicine, law, engineering and science.

The Fulton Schools emphasize discovery, design, innovation, entrepreneurship and societal impact. Our faculty and students are solving challenges in energy, health, sustainability, education and security.

Historically located on the Tempe campus of Arizona State University, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering’s innovative, experiential educational environment provides students the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in technically-oriented careers.

The Fulton Schools of Engineering undergraduate program ranking from U.S. News puts us in the top 25 percent of ranked programs. Many of our 320+ faculty members have been honored with the highest awards in their fields.

Annual events like our Career Exploration Night help students prepare for careers — and life — from day one.

In 2014, programs from the former College of Technology and Innovation joined the Fulton Schools of Engineering and we formed our sixth school, The Polytechnic School. This expands our footprint to ASU’s Polytechnic campus and the East Valley’s technology sector. 

Kyle D. Squires, Ph.D., professor in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy, is the dean of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
