HUMANITARIAN ENGINEERING WORKSHOP
May 13-19, 2018 : Transformative Education Experience : Leeuwarden
Humanitarian engineering concerns itself with how engineers can improve the technological capacity in at-risk and disadvantaged communities. The workshop enables students to formulate proposals for complex humanitarian problems and understand the ethical, cultural and social issues in humanitarian work. The workshop also aims to develop an appreciation among the students for the complex and ill-defined problems in humanitarian work.
"Going to this workshop made me see things differently. It taught me a lot about what engineers think people need versus what people actually need. There are many ways to help people.”
“It was very eye opening to look at the different aspects that contribute to problems around the world.”
Rahaf Al Sa’di
With the diversified skill set of the mentors, we are trying to creating an environment in which our engineers are mixing with other disciplines and opening up their minds to think differently.
