‘Humanitarian Engineering’ is defined as the use of science and engineering to invent, create, design, develop, or improve technologies which promote the well-being of communities which are facing grand humanitarian challenges (fast growing populations, poor, disaster-hit, marginalised, or under-served communities).

‘Humanitarian Engineering’ is defined as the use of science and engineering to invent, create, design, develop, or improve technologies which promote the well-being of communities which are facing grand humanitarian challenges (fast growing populations, poor, disaster-hit, marginalised, or under-served communities). The postgraduate course in Humanitarian Engineering is an interdisciplinary innovative educational programme for Humanitarian Engineers which promotes appropriate, sustainable, and holistic solutions to global challenges by integrating science into a broader practical scheme. The course is -by its nature- not a ‘just for Engineers’ course, instead it is for people with background in any of the following subjects: Science (e.g. Chemistry, Physics), Social Sciences (e.g. History, Politics, Sociology), Law, Health, Management, Business and Economics as well as Engineering.

This unique and cutting-edge programme enables students to tackle global problems (energy, water, natural disasters, humanitarian logistics, conflict and wars, global health, mixed in with overpopulation, poverty and underinvestment in low-income countries) in an interdisciplinary way and equip them to address causes, consider preventative approaches, and implement suitable responses. It is a flexible programme that provides students with an academically rigorous postgraduate level interdisciplinary training in the fields of Humanitarian Engineering, spanning from international development to humanitarianism and disaster emergencies. It involves a strong practical component with exposure to the ‘real world’ of organisations and practitioners and experience that boosts employability.

The course develops enterprising, outward-looking graduates who are both equipped to meet society’s newest and pressing challenges, and employer’s demands for advanced skills and knowledge, while translating these skills into the students’ chosen arena. Different stakeholders, beneficiaries and users (e.g. industry, policy-makers, and local communities) are involved in the programme, so that knowledge is orientated towards real world problems and challenges.

Students who are less tied to the bounded nature of a particular discipline are able to develop and seek learning between, beyond and across disciplines. The programme brings together an exciting group of European and International students with a diversity of academic and professional backgrounds who establish an international alumni network involved in humanitarian engineering research and practice.

At the point of application, students will choose one of three variants. Each variant offers different core and optional modules tailored to one of three pathways: general Humanitarian Engineering, Humanitarian Engineering with Sustainability, and Humanitarian Engineering with Management.

Students with a keen interest in Engineering might wish to pursue the MSc in Humanitarian Engineering with Sustainability, which focuses on renewable energy, and sustainable cities, operations, and infrastructures.

Students who wish to pursue Business-related issues might prefer the MSc in Humanitarian Engineering with Management, which offers opportunities to explore project management, communication and leadership, and management of sustainable supply chains.

The MSc in Humanitarian Engineering spans a broad range of disciplines and is ideal for students who are looking to explore all the professional and disciplinary facets of humanitarian challenges. Please see below for a list of core and optional modules for each variant.

Graduates of this programme will work across a broad range of areas. Students are expected to come from a broad array of international and professional backgrounds and go on after graduation into a wide variety of professional positions. Many Humanitarian Engineering graduates will work with the governments of developing countries managing the development process (e.g. central banks, ministries of finance, rural development, and education). Others will go on to multilateral development institutions like the World Bank, the IMF, or the United Nations; others to NGOs of all sizes and descriptions; and still others will go on to work in the private sector, in jobs as diverse as manufacturing, consulting, and investment banking, to name just a few. Some students may decide to pursue PhD studies.

That’s why each module on our programme gives you the chance to apply your intercultural skills and knowledge in a practical way – from in-class discussions and group projects, to case studies or an experiential placement.

As an MSc student you’ll also have many opportunities to gain first-hand insights into challenges that organisations face, thanks to our guest speaker series that runs through all terms. In previous years, we’ve hosted speakers from businesses and organisations from around the world, on a wide range of intercultural, international issues.

Experiential placements: go beyond the classroom

In today’s competitive workplace, opportunities to put theory into practice when studying are invaluable. As a student on our MSc ICBP, you’ll have the opportunity to undertake an experiential placement as part of your degree programme – giving you hands-on experience of applying the skills you’ve learned in the real world.

Our students have undertaken placements ranging from visiting our partner universities around the world, to organising their own work placement. Whether you want to study in China, or work with an international business in South Africa, you’ll have the chance to gain a real edge in taking the next step in your global career.
