McKyla Beuttler started at Arizona State Univesity in August 2017 after graduating from Corona del Mar Highschool. From the moment Beuttler arrived on campus, she has taken advantage of the many opportunities available to the School of Electrical, Computer and Electrical Engineering students, from participating in research to leading a design team and even snagging a coveted internship with Honewell this summer.
Under Beuttler’s leadership, her team of engineers designed an electronic waste bin to dispose of four streams of electronic waste. The bin has reduced contamination by over 50 percent and can be found in the Student Pavillion, with hopes to implement these bins all across campus. Her team was awarded a $5000 grant after presenting at ASU’s Demo Day to create a start-up company “Improved Waste Systems” to manufacture additional bins for the campus by Fall 2020.
When McKyla Beuttler started at ASU, she was unsure if engineering was the perfect fit, but by taking opportunities, reaching out to friends and faculty, she landed in electrical engineering with a love of circuit design. Her biggest advice is to take every opportunity that comes because you never what field or area you will end up liking.
