In the middle of a global pandemic, it’s clear the world is intensely interconnected. If we’re going to address global challenges, we need engineers who can see the big picture, collaborate across disciplines and work on diverse teams to find solutions.
For students who want to take on such ambitious goals, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering offers the Grand Challenges Scholars Program, known as GCSP. Endorsed by the National Academy of Engineering, or NAE, and Arizona State University, the program provides the tools and unrivaled experiences students need to become agents of change.
“The challenges we face as a global society are complex; it is important for engineers to look beyond the technical and recognize other types of people and information they must work with to effectively address them,” says Amy Trowbridge, GCSP director.
