What is Humanitarian Engineering?

This unique postgraduate suite of programmes, hosted by the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL), will enable you to tackle global problems (natural disasters, conflict and wars, global health, energy, water, humanitarian logistics, mixed in with overpopulation, poverty and underinvestment in low-income countries) in an interdisciplinary way and equip you to address causes, consider preventative approaches, and implement suitable responses.

Which pathway will you take to play a pivotal role in the solution of global humanitarian challenges?
