Help build the future.


Support the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE) and help deliver a world-class education to the next generation of emerging leaders. Build dreams, enable discovery, and help us engineer sustainable solutions for a better tomorrow. As the largest and most comprehensive engineering college in the country, ASU, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment are here to support the demand for innovation and leaders of the future.

This is a unique time in history. We must develop a sustainable mindset, innovative project management approaches, and technologies that create our future built environment. Our unique blend of civil and environmental, construction engineering and construction management programs—coupled with a focus on sustainable engineering—enables us to train students who can impact the entire lifecycle of the built environment, from planning to design to construction.

We are excited about our vision and the new opportunities SSEBE creates for these—and other—areas at the forefront of the emerging area of sustainable engineering and construction. We are addressing critical infrastructure needs in an environmentally sound manner.

​We invite you to partner with us as we forge ahead.
