No clean water supply, non-existing electricity grid and communications are some of many issues that a large part of the global population face. They are all connected to engineering, which makes engineering a key component in solving these problems. Sharing the knowledge and providing potential to fight these problems is called Humanitarian Engineering and is a fast growing field. Companies are now working with their own initiatives for helping people, and so much more can be done.
Engineers without Borders propose that this is the right time to integrate this subject in the Engineering education in Sweden. The core of the project is to make it possible for students to learn about humanitarian engineering, work with real life projects, help people and in the meantime get credits.
We now seek reinforcement for this project, driven people who are passionate about Humanitarian Engineering and education. You will be part of an educational group at Engineers without Borders, working to integrate Humanitarian Engineering at Chalmers including starting up a new MTS course. Your task will be contributing to and adjusting an existing course plan for this MTS course to provide optimal learning outcomes for the students and meet the conditions from the university. In this group you will have the opportunity to work with international relations at EWB and contribute with your ideas on how we can work further with education at EWB in Gothenburg. We would like to see that you have some knowledge in education or similar subjects and are driven to pursue this project.
