A consortium of engineers has proposed an extensive array of ventures along the United State-Mexico border that would focus on innovative development of energy and water resources and include industrial parks, research and education centers and agriculture enterprises. ASU Regents’ Professor Ron Adrian, a Fulton Schools professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, is among co-authors of the proposal. In an interview, Adrian talks about the consortium members’ hope that these various facilities and businesses would bring economic prosperity to the border region that would help to ease border security problems.
