Welcome to AES

bringing Engineering & Business together


What do you get as an 
AES student?

Read the quote from Thomas L. Friedman. Mr. Friedman writing in the New York Times (May 29, 2013) is quoting Eleonora Sharef, one of the two co-founders of HireArt, a company matching individuals to potential employees. 

HireArt asks just one question of a potential employee – 

Can you add value?

AES graduates reinvent themselves regularly, they  understand the mix of business and engineering, and very definitely ...
they add value to the company that hires them.

"People get rejected for jobs for two main reasons, said Sharef. One, “you’re not showing the employer how you will help them add value,” and, two, “you don’t know what you want, and it comes through because you have not learned the skills that are needed.” The most successful job candidates, she added, are “inventors and solution-finders,” who are relentlessly “entrepreneurial” because they understand that many employers today don’t care about your résumé, degree or how you got your knowledge, but only what you can do and what you can continuously reinvent yourself to do."

Notes from the Director

  • Mike Sadler: A punter and a scholar   Spartan football fans know Mike Sadler. He is the MSU punter who averaged more than 42 yards per punt this season, including numerous punts inside the 10-yard line, putting opponents at a disadvantage.  Sadler was a team leader and helped MSU win two of the most exciting college football games in the NCAA this season -- the Big Ten Championship and the historic 100th Rose Bowl.  Off the field, the redshirt junior is an even greater standout academically. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Applied Engineering Sciences in three years with a 3.9 grade-point average and is currently pursuing a PhD in economics. He has hopes of playing in the NFL someday, but also has thought ...

  • AES 310 Taught in a "Flipped Classroom" Beginning in Spring 2013, and lasting for the next two years, AES 310 will be taught in McDonel Hall. The prompt for this is the establishment by MSU of "REAL" classrooms (Rooms for Engagement and Active Learning). Spring 2013 was the first rollout of these REAL rooms to MSU, and AES 310 was selected to be one of the first courses on the MSU campus to get to use the rooms. The rooms enable 310 to be "flipped" - which means that students are required to prepare for class by using books, online web movies created by the instructor, online resources and tutorials pointed to by the instructor, or any of a large number of other resources. The key is that ...
