The Humanitarian Engineering, Science and Technology playlist is for those interested in understanding the context surrounding global development. This set of courses considers many issues in global development, including the context around the use of science and technology to improve access to basic human needs, to improve the quality of life, or improve the ability of people to earn a livelihood particularly in rural, resource-limited, or low-to-middle income settings.

Students interested in this playlist may also want to consider the Humanitarian Engineering minor. A plus (+) symbol following the course title indicates courses that are specifically recommended by the HEST minor because of the relevance of the material or because they are taught by a HEST-affiliated faculty member.
