Solving Problems that Matter

How do the engineers of the future address the constant problems that arise in our changing world from environmental degradation to income inequality?

Join the humanitarian engineering department and the Leadership in Social Responsibility Interest Group on Nov. 9 as we welcome Dr. Rachel Dzombak to Mines, presenting Solving Problems that Matter (and Getting Paid for it!). Dzombak is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Blum Center for Developing Economies and the Haas School of Business at University of California, Berkley. She is researching the roles of design and teaming in addressing these complex problems.

Come listen as Dzombak addresses not only the problems and questions that are facing our world today, but how engineers can help find solutions to these problems through design and education while pursuing a career.

This lecture is free and open to the public and will take place at 6 p.m. Nov. 9 in Marquez Hall 126, 1600 Arapahoe St. Golden, CO.
