Engineering for Humanity Inc. is the brainchild of the 2005 Diploma and Advanced Diploma of Engineering students from TAFE SA Noarlunga campus. The association is a non-profit research centre focussing on the learning needs of adult learners. It was established to provide engineering solutions for the benefit of humanity and to become educational hub for all South Australian students and the community.
While working on real life projects, students apply engineering principles and develop practical skills. They become employment-ready and have skills and knowledge to conquer increasing pressures from rapid technological changes and increased global competitiveness. In addition to technical skills students are developed in a holistic manner, with instilled civic values for the benefit of humanity.
Since its formal registration in 2006, Engineering for Humanity, in partnership with Stable Help Inc. - non-profit community association - has offered learning opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students in product development and manufacturing; innovative, government funded, informal vocational training for disengaged youths, unemployed, low socio-economic background students; leisure programs for elderly residents of nursing homes and business skills development for lifestyle coordinators in residential nursing centres.
