The humanitarian engineering program is looking for undergraduates to work on several projects:
We are seeking a team of capstone students to switch from the single discipline ME 497 capstone to the pilot multidisciplinary section of ENGR 415 capstone to work on the following project for Winter and Spring 2022. Ideally this team would include mechanical and electrical engineers.
Direct use of DC in residences used in Unhoused camps and remote and disaster areas
Researchers at Oregon State University are looking to fill positions for four graduate students in mechanical and humanitarian engineering for a $2.5M project funded by the US Department of Energy.
The College of Engineering and College of Liberal Arts are please to co-offer HEST/ANTH 201: "Innovation for Social Impact" this winter. (CRN 40610)

Dr. Larry Winiarski, the Technical Director of Aprovecho Research Center (ARC) and OSU PhD gradauate in mechanical engineering, died this past week at the age of 81. Larry is largely considered the grandfather of the global clean cookstove movement because he developed the ten design principles to optimize heat transfer and combustion efficiency in the "rocket stove" in the 1980s. Since then over 10 million rocket stoves have been made by local projects and inspired countless additional stove designs and projects.
We’re proud to announce that Dr. Nordica MacCarty and a team of collaborators recently received a Faculty Grant from VentureWell! VentureWell’s Faculty Grant program supports the creation or improvement of courses and programs that incorporate sustainability frameworks and principles, and encourages the creation of novel sustainable designs and green technologies.
This year the National Science Foundation selected our program's founding director, Dr. Kendra Sharp, to lead the office of International Science and Engineering. Congratulations, Kendra! Read more about Dr. Sharp and this 3-year position here: https://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=301741
