The Polytechnic at ASU East
[in conceptual phase; design phase: 2003; early implementation: 2004]
On the outskirts of Mesa, on the ASU East campus, we will build the nation’s first twenty-first century polytechnic. It will be a school focused on educating all of its students from the perspective of each having a high level of technical literacy, each being facile in the use of technology in their chosen field, and, finally, all being embedded in a technology-active directly-engaged campus learning environment.
At the Polytechnic at ASU East we will educate writers, teachers, engineers,
technologists, business professionals, scientists, and a range of other
specialists in how to think and solve problems from the perspective of
experience-based learning and applications-based problem solving. This
learning environment will prove to be unique and will attract students
from across Arizona and the world to its practical style and its focus
on the individual.
