A collage featuring 31 photos of outstanding Fulton Schools graduates

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering recognizes students who have worked diligently to excel academically and contribute to advancing the Fulton Schools mission.

Each semester, the Fulton Schools selects members of the graduating class who have demonstrated academic excellence, leadership and community service during their time as students. These exceptional students have excelled in research, public service, entrepreneurship and outreach.

Students chosen as Outstanding Graduates are honored for their exemplary academic performance and participation in activities that enhance their engineering skills. Impact Award winners are selected for their leadership, volunteer and service roles that have positively impacted the communities.

For some of these students, the path to graduation was riddled with unexpected turns, challenges or missteps. But through their perseverance, dedication and finding opportunities to perform outside the classroom, each of these graduates is leaving a lasting impact on the ASU community, Arizona and around the world.

Learn about the exceptional graduates of the Fall 2020 class below.
