'Engineering the Future' introduces ASU minds to industry needs

Business, meet Arizona State University’s engineers. This is what we can do for you.

That was the intent behind “Engineering the Future: Entrepreneurship, Partnerships and a Commitment to Innovation,” an event held Tuesday to introduce and promote collaboration between industry and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

The Phoenix Business Journal co-sponsored the event.

ASU students team up with Barrow to create medical rehab devices

In most classes, a good job results in an "A."

In Panagiotis Polygerinos’ mechatronics device class, a good job results in a patented invention that improves lives.

The Arizona State University assistant professor (pictured above) teamed his engineering students with therapists and physicians at Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix to create medical rehab devices.

Three of those devices are being patented.
