These are exciting times for Engineering at A-State! Our undergraduate enrollment is increasing, we are expanding our research, and we’ll be building a research-based graduate program in the near future.
Our engineering programs are recognized regionally and nationally for their academic excellence and unique educational experience. We believe in promoting excellence in engineering education with emphasis on teaching, mentoring, and student learning.
Challenge ready graduates
Engineering continues to evolve to meet the demanding challenges in the 21st century. Major strengths of the programs are the significant amount of student-faculty interaction, small class sizes, open-door policy of faculty, and the camaraderie of their fellow students. We are among the few engineering programs that offer a truly multidisciplinary approach that prepares graduates for the work environment that exists today.
All undergraduate engineering programs (civil, electrical, mechanical, and general) are accredited by ABET, an organization that accredits university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.

JONESBORO – The Kays Foundation is announcing its award of two grants to Arkansas State University faculty members.
The board of directors of the foundation awarded $6,163.60 to Dr. Amanda Lambertus, associate professor of mathematics education. She plans to use the grant to support a conference, "Nurturing Young Women Interested in Launching STEM Careers." Lambertus, who joined the mathematics faculty in 2000, earned her Ph.D. at North Carolina State University.
The foundation board also awarded a $5,278 grant to Dr. Shivan Haran, associate professor of mechanical engineering. He plans to use the grant to support his project, "Robotics Initiative for Elementary Schools." Haran, who came to A-State in 2002, completed his Ph.D. at the University of Houston.
Terry Carty, executive vice president of The Kays Foundation, said the grants are part of the foundation's ongoing commitment to assist the university through grants in support of projects that advance its academic, service and research missions. The foundation board reviews grant requests annually.
The Arkansas State College Foundation for the Advancement of Higher Education, which does business as Kays Foundation, traces its beginnings to 1911 and the administration of V.C. Kays, the founding president of the institution that evolved into Arkansas State University.
