i Jun 19th by

Humanitarian Engineering has emerged as a new field of engineering in which the application of engineering and technology is used to benefit people in disadvantaged communities. Humanitarian engineering projects span thematic areas from water to renewable energy to infrastructure and applications from disability access to poverty alleviation. Such projects offer rich learning opportunities for engineering students to work on real world projects. Yet such projects also require careful preparation and considerations in engaging with under-served communities. This presentation will be focused on how to prepare students to work on these types of projects and how faculty and students can work together on organizing such projects.
