Undergraduate Minor and Upcoming Course Offerings
Undergraduate Opportunities in humanitarian engineering include research, projects, a minor, and various course offerings to take alone or within the minor.
Students are encouraged to contact individual faculty in the program to determine if research opportunities are available.
There are a variety of projects available including senior capstone design projects sponsored by our program and undergraduate theses for the honors college students. Watch for announcements about these opportunities on the website or contact faculty directly to inquire.
Complete requirements for the minor can be found in the course catalog listing or HEST advising sheet:
To enroll in the minor or request consideration for substitutions for the requirements, please contact Mr. Brett Jeter in 238B Rogers Hall, 541-737-7991or email him via firstname.lastname@example.org. We note that MyDegrees does not do a good job of aligning coursework with the minor requirements, please contact Mr. Jeter for assistance.

If you are interested in the minor, a good place to start is to select your Bacc Core courses from the humanitarian engineering, science and technology (HEST) playlist. Courses marked by a '+' are specifically recommended because of the relevance of the material or because they are taught by a HEST-affiliated faculty member. Note that HEST310, HEST320, and HEST 412/512 are all currently approved to fill Bacc Core requirements for any student on campus.
