Humanitarian Engineering and Science Minor

Do more than just volunteer. Learn how to change the world.


You'll have an opportunity to:

  • Improve the well-being of underserved or developing communities.
  • Network with community and corporate partners already engaged in humanitarian efforts.
  • Achieve formal recognition for your experiential service learning accomplishments.

All are welcome

No matter what your major is, you can minor in humanitarian engineering and science. The minor requires 15 credit hours of coursework, including three semesters of GE 1880-Civic Engagement. A complete listing of the minor's required and elective courses can be found in the 2014-2015 curriculum and catalog.


Creating opportunities through partnerships

Get involved in experiential learning with community and corporate partners who are engaged in humanitarian efforts as either their core mission or as philanthropic activities outside the organization's normal scope.


Our current partners

The humanitarian engineering and science minor would not be possible without the support of our community, corporate and campus partners, who provide students with projects, goals, and a better understanding of what makes a community strong.
