Alexander Whitthus came to Arizona State University in August 2018. He chose ASU because of the university’s innovative reputation, as well as the prestige of Barrett, the Honors College and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

A graduate of Desert Ridge High School in Mesa, Arizona, Alexander selected his major because of his passion for digital electronics and automation. He is a student ambassador for the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering and an undergraduate research assistant in the Carbon and Nitrogen Dynamics Lab in the School of Earth and Space Exploration under Dr. Hilairy Hartnett. His goal is to be join ASU’s accelerated master’s degree program.

Alexander’s advice for students:
“Keep the main thing the main thing. Too often, we find ourselves distracted from what we really want and what really matters. Therefore, it is important to set short- and long-term goals and to occasionally remind ourselves of these goals in order to remain focused and on the path to success.”
