This course is an introduction to humanitarian engineering from ethical, cultural, and practical perspectives. Through this course, faculty and students will collectively develop and refine a set of humanitarian engineering ethics criteria (constraints). Students will then critically apply these criteria to specific examples of humanitarian technologies, including one that they will research and develop into a case-study. Students will also research multiple career pathways in humanitarian-related organizations and practices and consider potential careers as humanitarian scientists and engineers.
