Engineering Forum Series: Organizing Humanitarian Engineering Projects

i Jun 19th by

EFS PubmatHumanitarian 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.

College of Engineering won 1st Place in UP Lantern Parade 2017

COE Lantern

Pagpupugay! Muli nating nakamit ang unang gantimpala para sa Pinakamahusay na Parol 2017 sa ikatlong sunod na taon! Maraming salamat sa lahat ng mga nagpuyat, tumulong sa paggawa, at sumama sa parada ng mga parol. Maligayang Pasko sa ating lahat!

“Ang paaralan ang nagsisilbing palaruan ng mga malikhaing isip ng mga mag-aaral mula sa ibat-ibang pamayanan. Dito sila naglalaro, habang iniikot ang napakalawak na mundo, upang bigyan pa nang mas malawak na perspektiba ang ating kaisipan sa usaping-panlipunan. Sa UP Diliman namulat ang musmos na isipan ng Iskolar ng Bayan sa mga diskursong tulad ng pagkakapantay-pantay ng kasarian, maka-masa at libreng edukasyon, regularisasyon, at repormang pang-agraryo.

Ang mga karanasang lulan dito ay patuloy nating magiging sandigan na maghahatid ng mga angkop na solusyon sa mga suliranin nating mga Pilipino.

Inhinyero ng Diliman,
Isipa’y Maglaro
Maglingkod sa ating bayan!”
