Between Classes: Season 2 Episode 3, Kyle D. Squires
There’s an abundance of territory to explore at the intersection of engineering and the arts. So say Professor Kyle Squires, dean of the Fulton Schools, and Professor Steven Tepper, dean of ASU’s Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts. “Collisions” between engineers and artists often produce a fertile breeding ground for creativity and innovation, Squires and Tepper agree. They suggest that might be demonstrated in an entertaining fashion if engineering, arts and design students competed in a zombie costume contest. But, seriously, they conclude, the mixing of the artistic spirit and the drive to engineer solutions to big challenges is a recipe for making a better world.
