ABOUT

EWBNZ's 2019 Humanitarian Engineering conference will showcase people-centered and sustainable engineering projects that engage local communities.

Engineers from home and abroad present best practice examples and the beneficial project outcomes of a humanitarian approach to engineering.

Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the benefits and impact of socially aware engineering and will be equipped to use what they have experienced to make a positive social change.

This will provide an avenue for practitioners to share stories, the latest technological developments and lessons learnt in the industry. By demonstrating the positive outcomes of humanitarian engineering, we will encourage attendees to incorporate this approach into their everyday actions.

The event will consist of a series of interactive and dynamic sessions that:

  • Engage participants through presentations, workshops, and panel discussions.
  • Are led by inspiring speakers from New Zealand and around the world.
  • Will build links across the engineering, academic and development sectors and beyond.
  • Encourage networking and the collaboration of ideas from various fields and levels of experience.

 

WHEN: Saturday 27th July 2019

WHERE: The University of Auckland
