Miles Miller is pursuing his Masters of Science in Engineering through Arizona State University’s 4+1 accelerated master's program within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. In May 2018, he earned his Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Automotive Systems) on the Arizona State University Polytechnic campus through Barrett the Honors College. Throughout the course of his undergraduate degree, Miles was a BRECE (Broadening the Reach in Engineering through Community Engagement) scholar which allowed him to work on various community engineering projects both locally and globally. Through the BRECE scholarship program, he was able to travel to Maasailand, Kenya, both over the summer of 2017 and 2018 for a total of two months to develop and work on various engineering projects with the local community.
As a graduate student, Miles has been the GlobalResolve project mentor for the development of the first Maasai Automotive Education Center. He oversees the four teams of a total of 16 ASU students working on various aspects of development for the Maasai Automotive Education Center; curriculum, facility, microgrid, and supply chain management design. Miles will be in Maasailand from late May (2019) through July (2019) as a Global Development Research Scholar to explore the future economic effects of workforce development education within the Maasai community. To continue his passion for global project development, Miles is pursuing a Ph.D. in Innovation in Global Development through Arizona State University’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society.
