Ending global poverty through action 

The Hunt Institute and The Future Engineer

More than 1 billion people around the world live on less than $1 per day; of those 70 percent are women. More than 80 percent of the world's population lives on less than $10 per day.

The Hunter & Stephanie Hunt Institute for Engineering & Humanity strives to change the standard of living for the world's poorest populations, including those in the United States.

To do this, The Hunt Institute at the SMU Lyle School of Engineering is training a new generation of engineers in modern engineering applications—along with providing a deep exposure to global economics, cultural awareness, collaborative leadership and principles of sustainability.

Through the power of engineering—steeped in practical solutions, collaboration with partners, and a commitment to the principles of humanity—we will meet the challenges of the developing world.

Your presence at the inaugural Hunt Institute Engineering & Humanity Week 2011 is vital to achieving the goal of ending global poverty through action. The complete print program is now online (pdf). Welcome!
