Humanitarian Engineering Education in Australia and NZ

Recommended Posts

A summary of education and research mostly at universities in Australia attached here.  This was prepared by Rhys Keogh,, based at UTS, who I think is Australia's first "Engineering for Change Fellow".  These are competitive short-term research fellowships from the US-based Engineering for Change (EfC).  This report was prepared by Rhys as a snapshot of education and research in the area (Humanitarian Engineering, or Engineering for Global Development as I think E4C call it).  Certainly highlights again the rapid growth in the area in Australia and NZ.  Certainly highlights the potential role of this CoP and collaborations across universities, organisations and EA.
