Engineering takeaways and global snapshots from spring break
Fulton Schools students from four different ASU groups recently returned from trips to San Diego, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Peru over spring break. Like any spring breakers, they had plenty of fun in the sun, but these groups did more than take in the sights of their destinations — each group went to make a difference.
SenSIP striving to make solar energy systems more sustainable
Making photovoltaic cells more effective is critical to unleashing the potential of solar energy to become a major source of clean renewable power. ASU engineers’ expertise in sensor, signal and information processing promises to help maximize the output and reliability of facilities for converting sunlight into electrical power.
Mechanical engineering faculty help prepare students for licensing exam
The Fulton Schools mechanical engineering faculty is doing their part to help students with the Fundamentals Engineering Exam, or FE Exam. They offered students a free, eight-week workshop to prepare their students for this milestone in their engineering careers.
Engineering Smiles looks to mobilize dental care abroad
For millions around the world, proper dental care is an unattainable luxury. Since fall 2013, an engineering-led team of six ASU students has been working to help provide dental services to those in need. Engineering Smiles, a project that started in Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS), has spent the last three years working to design, build and deliver a mobile dental clinic which will bring dental care to developing nations. The team is now in their final fundraising push, with a total goal of $180,000.
