We know it's not just about what goes on while you study with us, but also what happens after you graduate.

Perhaps you know exactly what you would like to do after graduation, or perhaps you’re still considering your options? Whatever point you are at in planning your career, you'll find lots of support, resources and activities available at The University of Warwick to help you make decisions, enhance your employability skills and achieve your career goals.

By completing this interdisciplinary course you will be more equipped to think and work in a problem- and solution-oriented way. With a broad perspective and the ability to communicate with parties of different backgrounds, you will be equipped to meet society’s most-pressing challenges, and employer’s demands for advanced skills and knowledge.

Our graduates will be able to work with anybody, anywhere, imagining solutions and making that imagination a reality

Humanitarian Engineering graduates will be well-placed to work with governments (e.g. central banks, ministries of finance, rural development, and education). You'll gain skills that are sought after by multilateral development institutions (e.g. World Bank, IMF, United Nations), NGOs and the private sector (e.g. professional services, manufacturing, and investment banking). You may also decide to pursue PhD studies.

The course will educate a new generation of highly skilled professionals with a broad perspective to tackle real-world humanitarian problems

We will see many of our graduates use their final research project as a stepping stone into the working world, for others it could open the door to your next career move.
