See our students building shelters for the preservation of life and alleviation of suffering

On 16 May 2019 our Msc Humanitarian Engineering students had the opportunity to build a variety of emergency shelters on campus by using naturally sourced materials such as bamboo. They had the opportunity to work as a member of a small team to efficiently construct, in the field, an emergency shelter, practicing every aspect of the construction process, from preparing the materials provided to assembling structural frames and attaching roof covers.
