About: This biannual publication was created to tell the stories that illustrate the Fulton Difference and what makes us distinct and outstanding. In each publication you will read about our excellent faculty, students and alumni and what they are doing in the classrooms, labs and in their communities to innovate a better world.
The spring 2016 issue exemplifies the Fulton Schools’ passionate quest to engineer the future. The cover story features ASU Regents’ Professor Edward Kavazanjian’s work in the new National Science Foundation Research Center, the Center for Bio-mediated and Bio-inspired Geotechnics (CBBG) to advance innovative soil stabilization and environmental restoration technologies to improve infrastructure.
Also inside are stories on the world’s first white lasers demonstrated at ASU, a partnership with Pakistani universities for global approach to energy solutions, and a new center and partnerships with Rice and Yale to transform the economics of water treatment. We also highlight groundbreaking research projects and our most recent cohort of high performing young faculty members.
