ASU welcomes new engineering faculty

Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering new faculty 2021-2022

More than 30 new faculty members are joining the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University for the 2021-2022 academic year. These talented professionals bring skills and insights from top universities, leading laboratories and industry innovators across the nation and around the world — from Texas to Turkey. As they help to grow America’s largest university engineering program, they also enhance the scope and impact of educational and research enterprise at the Fulton Schools.

These experts in biomedical, chemical, computer, electrical, manufacturing, mechanical and other engineering disciplines will augment an already remarkable community of students, researchers and entrepreneurs. Simultaneously, they will advance ASU’s collective efforts to address the great challenges of our time and transform society for the better.

“Academic and research excellence by our faculty is a central goal, and one that is effectively a journey requiring tremendous dedication by the faculty and support by FSE,” says Kyle Squires, dean of the Fulton Schools. “Our faculty not only make impact within their disciplines but also foster an environment and a culture that promotes excellence. We always benefit from more gifted minds and articulate voices to broaden the impacts that we have all come to expect from the Fulton Schools. So, please join me in extending an enthusiastic welcome to these impressive scholars.”
