Hands-On Helping: Center Integrates Education, Outreach

The new Humanitarian Engineering Center aims to educate service-minded engineers, while accelerating the College of Engineering’s efforts to create solutions for people in need and empower sustainable development at home and abroad. It will coordinate multiple initiatives, including courses, service projects, the humanitarian engineering minor and study abroad experiences. Members also conduct advanced research to develop novel, needs-driven solutions and disseminate those research results widely.

Engagement is:

The collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
