Celebrating 10 years as the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering
At Arizona State University, we’ve been educating engineers for Arizona and the world for nearly 60 years. With almost 9,000 students, we are building the engineers of the future and pursuing the discoveries and solutions to the challenges facing society. E2 Camp, our innovative orientation for all incoming freshmen, is just the beginning of our “engineering from day one” culture, that emphasizes problem-solving, entrepreneurship, multidisciplinary interactions, societal context and connections.
In 2003, Ira A. Fulton, founder and CEO of Arizona-based Fulton Homes, established an endowment of $50 million in support of ASU’s College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
Since receiving his transformational gift, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering have seen tremendous growth—both in scale and quality—of people and programs. Fulton’s investment has served as a catalyst for this advancement, enabling the development of a dynamic portfolio of strategic initiatives that benefit our students and faculty and the communities where they live and work.
Throughout, Ira A. Fulton has remained an active supporter of the school that bears his name. He is a familiar face to students and a regular presence at events such as the semi-annual Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative Symposium and engineering convocation ceremonies.
We are grateful for the ongoing support provided by Ira A. Fulton.
