The Merits of Humanitarian Engineering

Engineers without Borders is hosting this event to introduce attendees to the key values of humanitarian engineering, and highlight the value of humanitarian engineering in modern society.

A panel of 3 speakers will address this topic through 3 different perspectives: an academic in the water field, a returned field volunteer, and a director of EWB’s new pro-bono engineering program.

Learn how you can have a positive impact on humanitarian issues through engineering and have a better understanding of what humanitarian engineering is and why it is so important for modern day society.

Following the conclusion of the presentations, there will be an opportunity for the audience to pose questions to the panelists before networking.
