Peace Engineering: A Partnered Approach to Engineering Education and Research


The increasing impacts of climate change, urbanization, population growth and migration, along with the rapid adoption of technology in our day-to-day lives will continue to create conflict within and among communities; when systems lack the resiliency necessary to dampen this conflict, the outcome is often violence.
