About this course

This Diploma will allow you to apply your knowledge in engineering humanitarian service, broaden your skills, and widen your perceptions of engineering.

The Diploma in Global Humanitarian Engineering can only be completed in parallel with a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree, in any engineering discipline.

The programme combines courses in the humanities and social sciences with service-based experiential learning. Students will work on community-identified engineering issues and projects.

This additional qualification is ideal for those engineering students interested in:

  • helping to solve global issues such as food and water shortages, power supply, climate change, and ageing populations
  • adding a humanitarian focus to your degree
  • having the opportunity to work in a disadvantaged or developing community as part of your degree.

Entry requirements

Enrolment in the Diploma in Global Humanitarian Engineering is open to Bachelor of Engineering with Honours students in their 2nd-4th years, from any discipline.

To enter, you must have successfully completed the first year of the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree, and your application will need to be approved by the College of Engineering Dean (Academic).

Please see the Regulations for the Diploma in Global Humanitarian Engineering for full details.
