Humanitarian engineering education has received significant interest over the last 15 years at universities in the developed world. Numerous education initiatives and programs for humanitarian engineering and related areas including global engineering and engineering for development are available to students (such Amadei and Wallace, 2009; Campbell and Wilson, 2011, and Leydens and Lucena, 2014). These can involve a mix of traditional coursework along with a significantly levels of service-learning with students undertaking projects of various sizes and durations with community organisations on an identified need or challenge (VanderSteen et al, 2009). In Australia, service-learning projects are often incorporated into final year engineering projects, either group based or individual. These are supported by curriculum opportunities such as the EWB Challenge for first year students. However, across Australia there has been a significant gap in humanitarian engineering coursework for later year students to support service-learning opportunities.
