Save lives as an engineer 

Save lives as an engineer

Find out how engineers save lives on a massive scale.

Our poster and accompanying teacher booklet with notes, activities and a lesson plan, help students understand the scale and impact of disaster response engineering.

Many types of engineering are employed in helping communities affected by disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis and avalanches. From designing equipment and technology used to find and rescue victims, to providing shelter and transport networks, restoring electricity and sanitation and creating medical devices, detection systems and buildings that can withstand extreme pressure, engineers save hundreds of thousands of lives.
