“The Humanitarian Engineering Program at Mines was the highlight of my college education. While in the HE program, I was free to ponder the problems that mattered to me such as poverty and inequality. I also learned to acknowledge that the types of problems I wanted to solve in sustainable development would need more than an engineer’s technical skills: they need the kind of critical and holistic view that we learn in HE courses.”
