Housed within ASU's School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering, the industrial engineering program is ranked in the top 20 nationally by U.S. News & World Report and is among the top programs in the western United States. The program is strongly focused on industrial statistics and quality engineering, applied operations research, production, and supply-chain logistics and enterprise information systems in challenging manufacturing and service environments.
Supply Chain Management
The W. P. Carey Department of Supply Chain Management is consistently ranked top 5 nationally for undergraduate and graduate programs by U.S. News & World Report. Their research advances knowledge in global supply chain management while focusing on issues of practical importance, and their faculty are globally recognized for expertise in procurement, supply management, operations management, logistics and supply chain performance optimization.
Aviation Management Technology
Aviation programs offer comprehensive undergraduate and graduate degrees that combine academic studies with professional flight and aviation training, including unmanned aerial systems management. The year-round flying weather in the Valley of the Sun creates the best flying environment in the country. Combine that with programs that stay on the cutting edge of aviation science and technology, and you have a learning experience second to none.
Automotive Systems Engineering
Students in the automotive systems concentration of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering program first build a broad engineering foundation to which they add skills and knowledge necessary for vehicle design and testing. The concentration curriculum focuses on automotive engineering fundamentals, including powertrain engineering and chassis system design as well as hands-on projects that involve designing, analyzing and building of actual automotive systems. Graduates of this concentration are able to provide leadership in automotive engineering settings, especially automotive testing and hybrid propulsion systems, which are intrinsically transdisciplinary in nature.
Transdisciplinary Transportation Studies
Transportation has emerged as one of the highest priority issues for policymakers, employers, and citizens. The certificate program enhances the education of current and future transportation professionals to respond to this challenging environment. It builds upon existing programs in a variety of disciplines offered from four colleges and two campuses in the ASU system. The program approaches the subject from an integrated systems perspective and exposes students to a range of transportation alternatives and the interrelationships between transportation and economics, social equity, land use, technology, policy, energy, and the environment.
The Civil Engineering program at Arizona State University emphasizes sustainability as an integrated approach to engineering that focuses on the long-lasting improvement of the human condition. You can be a part of local, national and international research efforts to promote safe and sustainable development including transportation, water resources, buildings, and other man-made structures. Specialty areas include Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, Hydrosystems Engineering, Structural and Materials Engineering, Sustainable Engineering, and Transportation Engineering.
Transportation Planning & Policy
Researchers at the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning (SGSUP) are exploring the transition to sustainable transportation, emphasizing innovations in planning and policy to reduce the need for travel within cities; shifting travel to non-automobile modes such as walking, cycling, and public transit; and low-carbon transportation fuels and propulsion technologies. A primary aim is to achieve the goal of "sustainable transportation." This emphasizes planning and policies to reduce aggregate travel, the shift to non-automotive modes of travel, such as walking, cycling, and public transit, and the transition to low-carbon transportation fuels and propulsion technologies. SGSUP's other clusters of research include Computational Spatial Science, Place, Identities and Culture, Earth Systems & Climate Science, Sustainability Science & Studies, Community Development for Social Equity, Spatial and Economic Analysis, and Urban Design & Sustainable Cities.
