Abstract

The main aspects of humanitarian Engineering at the Colarado School of Mines (CSM) are discussed. the goal of this project is the nurturing of a new cadre of engineers, sensitive to social contexts, committed and qualified to serve humanity by contributing to the solution of complex problems at regional, national, and international levels and locations around the world. The model of integration between an existing engineering program and a humanitarian component serves as an exemplar on how to inject social and environmental responsibility to engineering education and the profession above. Humanitarian engineering will be effective in drawing women and minority students to enginering, and promote campus diversity.
