Alicia Baumann

Lecturer, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering


Ali Baumann received her master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wyoming before working as senior systems engineer at General Dynamics C4 Systems. She is now part of the freshman engineering education team in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. Currently, she focuses on enhancing the curriculum for the freshman engineering program to incorporate industry standards into hands-on design projects. She is an instructor for the Introduction to Engineering program, Engineering Transfer Success program, Engineering Futures program, and the Electrical Engineering department of ASU. She is a winner of the Fulton Top 5% Teaching Award and was nominated for Badass Women of ASU. Her philosophy boasts incorporating large scale systems engineering techniques into collegiate engineering curriculum to better prepare upcoming professionals and develop a student’s resume from day one. Her goal for the Society of Women Engineers at ASU is to foster an environment engaging women to achieve self-independence while creating a network of supportive female professionals.
