Introduction to Humanitarian Engineering (HumanE) 2022

Brief Description

Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Institut Teknologi Bandung, is organizing an “Introduction to Humanitarian Engineering (HumanE)” International Virtual Course (IVC) 2022. IVC 2022 will be held on 1-25 August 2022, with both online and offline settings (hybrid) for participants’ preference. Aimed at discussing and providing an understanding to higher education engineering students on how humanitarian engineering is implemented in engineering projects and activities. There will be talks on the humanitarian engineering from ethical, theory and practical perspectives, sustainability, role of engineers in disaster management and humanitarian response, followed by several aspects on its implementation in various sectors, such as geologic hazards, architectural and structural aspects, and social interface. Interactive discussion-based activities and group collaborations will help participants to envisage how humanitarian engineering could be implemented within their practice.
