Arizona State University was the perfect school for Naysan Sahba. His love of the desert terrain and outdoor activities paired with affordability and a solid engineering program at ASU sealed the deal.

The opportunities available within the field of electrical engineering are what piqued his interest in this discipline. “I could end up working in so many different fields all the way from artificial intelligence to rocket ships,” said Sahba. “The broad opportunities wrapped up in electrical engineering excites me.”

Sahba is most interested in socially driven projects and initiatives. He is currently working with a team of students to design and install solar systems for a Native American village in northern Arizona. The project is bringing necessities such as refrigeration to combat numerous health-related struggles they face. Sahba also enjoys working with the EPICS and Engineers Without Borders programs; they offer hands-on ways for him to use his skills that have a profound and positive impact on the community.
