An engineer’s tour of phoenix

Visitors often get here by way of the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, one of the ten busiest in the nation with 100,000 people arriving and departing every day.  Go green as you get around town on Valley Metro light rail and busses. Explore the Sonoran Desert by hiking, biking, on horseback, or by hot air balloon.  Exercise your mind at Arizona State University, which is one of the nation’s greenest universities and home to the Global Institute of Sustainability. Almost 17,000 ASU students are enrolled in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering where programs focus on problem solving and teamwork, entrepreneurship, and engineering’s impact on society, along with design and innovation.  Graduates have the opportunity to land a hot job in Phoenix’s growing industries like renewable energy, biomedical engineering and healthcare, data, technology and research, aerospace and aviation, manufacturing and distribution, and startups. And after all that exploring and education, be sure to sample some authentic Mexican and Southwestern cuisine.
