Humanitarian Engineering Networking Event


Humanitarian Engineering Networking Event

Learn more about the important role of engineers in emergencies and network with fellow engineers and humanitarian professionals

RedR UK, the Uganda Institution Of Professional Engineers (UIPE) and Makerere University College of Engineering Design Art and Technology (CEDAT) are pleased to announce a networking event for engineers, humanitarians and development professionals in Uganda.

This free-of-charge event in Kampala will explore the important role of engineers in emergencies, and provide an opportunity for attendees to network and make connections with others in the humanitarian engineering sectors. It will feature guest speakers from non-governmental organisations in Uganda, as well as an exciting announcement regarding a microgrant scheme, where we will be providing small scale funding to humanitarian engineering projects.

The event begins at 10am with a welcome address from UIPE, and will conclude at 2pm. Attendees will be provided with resources for the event, as well as lunch and coffee/tea breaks.


This is a free networking event, however due to high demand and limited capacity, tickets will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis. To ensure strong networking, we will be ensuring there is a mix of experiences in the room - you can therefore either apply for an 'engineering ticket' (if you are an engineer in Uganda who has attended our 'Humanitarian Skills for Engineers' programme), or a 'NGO ticket' (if you are a humanitarian or development professional).

If you have any questions regarding the application, please email engineering.skills@redr.org.uk
