  1. OK, compiling the suggestions above I have tried to incorporate as best as possible. Comments on the letter component and the 6 digit fields are appreciated. Also can you please make it clear if you wish to be included as a signatory to the letter. Humanitarian Engineering as a Field of Research Code The consideration of Humanitarian Engineering as a Field of Research code under ANZSRC marks another milestone in the continued rise of the field as an area of practice and research. This growth is matched by the increasing number of academics and industry who are affiliated with the field. In recognition of this growth the undersigned recommend that Humanitarian Engineering be added as a four-digit FOR code. Including Humanitarian Engineering as a four-digit FOR code will enable higher education institutions to showcase and be evaluated in Humanitarian Engineering under the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) system. This will be vital in ensuring Australia is the global leader in Humanitarian Engineering research. If Humanitarian Engineering is accepted as a four-digit FOR code, then several six-digit codes will be required. The following are proposed: · Humanitarian Engineering Design, Paradigms and Methods · Humanitarian Engineering Technology · Humanitarian Engineering Management, Policy and Professional Practice · Humanitarian Engineering Capacity Building, Education and Training · Humanitarian Engineering not else classified
  2. Hi everyone, Jeremy, Andrea and myself (as well as others) believe that we should recommend that Humanitarian Engineering be a 4 digit FOR code. The benefit of having a 4 digit code is that it allows higher education institutions to showcase and be evaluated in Humanitarian Engineering under the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) system. If HE is a 4 digit code then there would need to be a set of 6 digit FOR codes that fall underneath it. If interested can you please leave a comment below with your suggestions for 6 digit FOR codes relating to Humanitarian Engineering. Please make your suggestions and comments by the 4th February. I will compile these and circulate a draft recommendation letter to be submitted on the 7th February. Suggested 6 digit HE FOR codes so far include: Humanitarian Engineering Design Appropriate Technology Development Emergency Response Assistive technology Inclusive design Humanitarian Engineering Education
  3. Are you or do you know a passionate engineer dedicated to social change? Are you interested in advancing knowledge in the field of Humanitarian Engineering? The Humanitarian Engineering Group at RMIT University have five PhD projects currently available some with scholarships attached. To find our projects search for 'humanitarian' here: https://lnkd.in/g8ZSHdh The deadline for Expression of Interest is March 31 for domestic applicants (Australian citizens and permanent residents) and February 3 for international applicants. More information about the application process can be found here: https://lnkd.in/fQGXuiF Let me know if you are interested or have any questions. #humanitarian #phd #research #rmit
  4. It was great to meet everyone and recruit some new members at WEC. I managed to take this shot of Rob talking.

  5. I am interested in understanding how engineers deployed on short, medium and long term disaster and development projects build competencies in line with Engineers Australia Stage 2 Framework. Before setting up a formal investigation I would love to get the communities input into this topic. What are the skills that you develop on deployments? Are these skills developed differently to the way in which they might be working as a professional engineer in more traditional industry? Are there any skills or competencies that you can't complete a deployment without gaining?
