Overview

The DipGlobalHumanEng will allow you to apply your knowledge in engineering humanitarian service, broaden your skills and widen your perceptions of engineering. The diploma can be completed in parallel with a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours degree in any discipline. It is an additional qualification that can be completed in the same time it takes to complete a four-year BE(Hons) degree.

This diploma 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.
