Humanitarian Engineering Initiative


​The Humanitarian Engineering: Designing Solutions for Health Challenges in Crises is a 3 credits course that has been organized four times during the past two years in collaboration with the Departments of Biomedical​Engineering and International Health at Boston University. In this course, students from diverse disciplines work together in teams on ideation, design, and solution prototyping. They participate in a series of lectures, field visits to refugee camps, an engineering hackathon, and a competition all focused on designing solutions for health challenges in crises. The next offering of the course will be during the Winter 2020 semester.​​
