Humanitarian Engineering Minors

Humanitarian Engineering - Solutions that improve lives and livelihoods!

At UNSW Engineering, we are developing a new generation of global leaders who aim to solve the greatest challenges and engineer a sustainable world. By studying the Humanitarian Engineering Minors, you have the invaluable opportunity to apply sustainable and innovative technologies to help solve problems in disadvantaged communities, both in Australia and internationally.

These solutions may provide essential services such as food, water, shelter, energy and information where they are unavailable. In such cases, Humanitarian Engineers work to improve underlying inequalities of access and availability in the context of ‘development’ and work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
