In highlighting the accomplishments of researchers in the Fulton Schools of Engineering, the numbers say a lot:

Research Expenditures (FY2014 estimated)
$85.33 million

Research Awards (FY2014 estimated)
$95.92 million (top award sponsors are the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, Department of Energy and National Institutes of Health)

Enrollment (fall 2014)
16,799 students

Proposals submitted (FY2014 estimated)
$600,666,419 submitted
1,215 total proposals submitted

But so do the achievements of the Fulton Schools of Engineering’s collaborative partnerships and high-achieving research centers.

Currently the Fulton Schools has an NSF/DOE Engineering Research Center called the Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies (QESST) and 5 NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRCs) including Connection One, the Center for Embedded Systems, SenSIP, Water and Environmental Technology (WET) and Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC).

In partnership with the Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development and other ASU schools, the Fulton Schools of Engineering are launching new initiatives in the areas of robotics, instrumentation and procedures for biomedical applications. The school is also organizing several teams to pursue institutes in the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) program.

Already a member of Power America, the NNMI Institute for power electronics, the Fulton Schools of Engineering recently joined the Digital Manufacturing And Design Innovation Institute in Chicago, and is actively pursuing several other NNMI institutes for integrated photonics, flexible hybrid electronics and clean energy manufacturing. Follow closely for future announcements and funding opportunities related to these institutes.

In other news, Ed Hall was appointed interim director of the CSSER/Nanofab facility. Under his leadership the center has undergone many positive changes and invested substantially in new capital equipment to provide better service to the entire university. Learn more
