At home and abroad, Buckeye engineers are creating solutions to help people in need and empower sustainable development. Those efforts—ranging from providing access to clean water, food and energy to improving technology capacity for impoverished communities—got a boost in 2014 with the launch of the College of Engineering’s new Humanitarian Engineering Center.
Members also conduct advanced research to develop novel, needs-driven solutions and disseminate those research results widely.
While the center is new, its focus area is not. Humanitarian engineering at Ohio State dates back at least 35 years, when Professor Emeritus Herman Weed involved students in his work to provide engineering and technical support for Project Hope.
