Engineering is more than a career choice. It’s a profession, a whole set of professions, with the potential to address many of the planet’s most pressing problems.

The world needs engineers who bring to technical development an understanding of the human and environmental impacts of technology, and who are committed to sustainability in their practice. The HERE program helps train such engineers with these key goals in mind.


  • Enjoy a unique educational and residential environment focused on sustainability
  • Work with faculty from engineering, sciences, and humanities with expertise in sustainability studies
  • Design and implement real sustainable engineering projects on the Rose- Hulman campus, courtesy of a generous grant from Procter & Gamble
