Humanitarian Engineering

The Humanitarian Engineering program at Colorado School of Mines brings together engineering and social science professors to transform engineering by changing the ways engineers are taught to think, define, and solve problems. We train engineers to serve communities co-creating socially responsible, just and sustainable solutions. We offer two undergraduate minors, empower faculty to transform their teaching, bring world class speakers to Mines, and conduct research that addresses some of the biggest challenges facing engineers.
