Joint ASU-Army project helps bridge the gap between civilians, soldiers
A joint ASU-U.S. Army project is providing valuable information to aid the country’s military in its missions around the world. Each semester, ASU students are assigned to research densely populated urban regions in other countries. The goal is to help U.S. military forces better understand the cultural, demographic, social and economic environments of those regions before U.S. troops deploy to those areas. Fulton Schools biomedical engineering student Nathan Hui is among those who have participated. Hui says his extensive information-gathering for the Army on Algiers, Algeria, provided excellent training in conducting research.
