The 2nd Annual Humanitarian Engineering Symposium has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be held virtually in Spring 2021. The theme of this year’s symposium is Environmental Justice.
The mission of the Mines HE Symposium is to encourage students and professionals to incorporate the human-centered design approach into their engineering projects and explore the socio-technical nature of real-world problems. It will include guest speakers as well as round-table discussions with local organizations to continue the conversation about social responsibility.
Please check back for updates as new details are finalized!

Support the Program
From corporate CEOs to the heads of NGOs, leaders committed to social, environmental, and economic stability worldwide demand a different kind of engineer for the 21st century.
Mines is ready to meet this challenge through its Humanitarian Engineering Program, with focus areas in Engineering for Community Development and Leadership in Social Responsibility and a new interdisciplinary Humanitarian Engineering and Science master’s degree. At Mines, we embrace engineering the way it should be.
How will you meet the challenge?
