Area of Special Interest in HE

Area of Special Interest in Humanitarian Engineering

We are proud to announce Colorado School of Mines new Area of Special Interest in Humanitarian Engineering (ASI in HE). Now welcoming students for the Fall 2020 semester.

The ASI in HE is 12 credits (4 courses) and gives students the opportunity to explore a breath of key topics, methods and design approaches related to humanitarian engineering. Our ASI in HE is designed for undergraduate students with strong interests in humanitarian engineering but do not have the time to commit to a full minor or do not have Capstone design as a requirement in their major. Please email Prof. Juan Lucena, Director of Humanitarian Engineering Undergraduate Programs, at jlucena@mines.edu and Julia Roos, Associate Director of Humanitarian Engineering, at jroos@mines.edu to sign up for the ASI or for advice on course selection.
