Humanitarian Engineering and Computing

Humanitarian Engineering and Computing

Humanitarian Engineering and Computing is about using engineering and computing in a culturally sensitive and sustainable way to address issues that limit opportunities and development in communities.

It can be applied on a local, national or international level and is not necessarily restricted to being a reaction to a disaster or crisis.

Coventry University is committed to developing globally aware engineers who use their knowledge to design solutions that enhance the lives and capabilities of people, especially those living in communities with significant needs.

The practice of engineering is not the same in different parts of the world. Constraints on resources, infrastructure and skills mean that there needs to be innovation in the way engineering projects are delivered. Our work on Humanitarian Engineering & Computing is about using our expertise to help communities around the world to achieve their goals.
