Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The humanitarian engineering movement has gained increasing momentum in recent years with a greater focus on the responsibility of engineers to create positive social impacts in both a humanitarian context and within the engineering profession in Australia. This has led to an increase in the number of student based learning programs and opportunities centred on humanitarian engineering within universities. These include the EWB Challenge, Humanitarian Engineering Design Summits and the Humanitarian Research Program coordinated by Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB), as well as dedicated course and project work developed within universities._x000D_
With this critical mass of educational opportunities comes a need to create learning pathways to promote cumulative learning for students and for a collaborative effort between universities and practitioners to define competencies and student learning outcomes required to for a humanitarian engineer. This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to participate in a working group facilitated by EWB focusing on creating such learning pathways within Australian universities. _x000D_
