Engineering for Humanity Certificate

The Engineering for Humanity Certificate is open to all undergraduate students. The certificate program both guides and formalizes student participation in engineering projects that serve marginalized communities while being environmentally and socially sustainable. Moreover, the certificate program addresses the significance of the rapid and effective penetration of culture, politics, and business forces in new technologies. This certificate will allow undergraduate students to earn credit for service learning projects. Students have the option of pursuing either a U.S. or international track.

The certificate embodies significant flexibility, with only 2 of 5 courses being explicitly defined, so participating students may tailor course work to their region and topic of interest. It is expected that with appropriate planning at least two of the courses will align with departmental BS graduation requirements.
