The purpose of the peace engineering program is to engage and teach students to collaborate with and empower those experiencing injustices to develop innovative and sustainable solutions from a service mindset. The integrative program brings the social analysis of justice & peace studies together with the technical skills of engineering to find the best way for our engineers to promote the common good.

Peace Engineers might work on projects such as: energy & water resources aid of technology in areas of conflict or natural disaster public safety in engineering decisions agricultural tools to fight poverty and hunger

All these examples are meant as just that, examples to stimulate ideas about the places your passion for social, environment, and economic justice and your growing technical skills may lead you.
