EPICS is looking for new students to join teams: enroll in EPICS courses today!

Posted by on Jul 11, 2016 in Customize your experience, Opportunities |

The Engineering Projects in Community Service program, known as EPICS, is a national award-winning social entrepreneurship program. Teams design, build and deploy systems to solve engineering-based problems for charities, schools and other not-for-profit organizations. Our students aren’t waiting to graduate to make a difference—they are tackling real-world problems today. EPICS courses use an innovative technology-based approach to very old problems—access to clean drinking water, providing nutritious food in remote villages. We do not take an off-the-shelf solution; we are looking for big-picture, breakthrough thinking.

There are two ongoing EPICS projects that are looking to bring some new talent onto their teams.

The Aqualibria project is working to develop a solution to food security and economic development challenges for communities on the island of Pemba off the East coast of Africa.  This project hopes to provide local co-operatives with fresh food in an area of food deserts, clean water in an area that is regularly fraught with water-borne disease, and economic development in a perennially impoverished community.  The team is in need of students with an interest in food production, sustainability, water treatment, and general engineering and design.

The Carlos Pinto Water Project is working with a local professional chapter of Engineers Without Borders to develop innovative solutions for water treatment and distribution for a rural village in the Dominican Republic.  This partnership has generated several great opportunities for students to work on an international project with a very engaged local partner.  The team is in need of students with an interest in community development, infrastructure, water treatment, and mechanical and/or chemical engineering.

In addition to these ongoing projects, one of our long-time community partners, Treasures4Teachers, is engaging with EPICS once again for a new project. This Fall semester, EPICS students will have the opportunity to help this fantastic non-profit that works to provide low cost school supplies to teachers and schools to help improve their impact.  The team will have needs for industrial engineering students and engineering management students. Students within computer science and computer systems majors and those with general interest in supply chain or non-profit operations and education will be welcomed to the team as well.

Due to high demand, new sections of FSE 104: EPICS Gold have been added for Fall 2016, and there are open seats in all sections of FSE 494: EPICS Gold in Action. Get enrolled today!

Essential reading: Books that entertain, enlighten and inspire

Posted by on May 5, 2016 in Faculty, Spirit and Traditions |

Dominick Saccente, a mechanical engineering student in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering’s Grand Challenge Scholars program, reads science fiction and fantasy novels for fun. But the books have had a serious influence on his decision to become an engineer. “Those genres of fiction create societies with amazing technology that could one day become reality,” he says. “It inspires me to want to design and build toward a brighter future for all.” Photographer: Hayden Taylor/ASU

Attention: 4+1 Students — Joyce’s Career Tip of the Week

Posted by on Jul 25, 2016 in Career | 2 comments

Students often ask how to show their participation in Fulton’s 4+1 program when writing a résumé. Recruiters will typically look at the date of degree completion to determine if a student is seeking an internship or a full-time position.

Examples:

Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Mechanical Engineering    May 2016
Arizona State University Tempe, AZ                                         GPA 3.6

This entry would indicate that studies have been completed and the student is seeking a full-time position.

Master of Science in Engineering, Mechanical Engineering       May 2017
Arizona State University Tempe, AZ
Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Mechanical Engineering    May 2016
Arizona State University Tempe, AZ                                         GPA 3.6

The second entry shows that you are a continuing student. This is important, especially if you are looking for an internship. Many companies have a policy that students are only eligible for internships if they are continuing their education.
