    the people on our planet who are most in need Our mission and overarching goal is to promote integrated and participatory solutions to human development by educating globally responsible engineering students and professionals promoting research on developing community issues and reaching out to build local capacity and resiliency in developing communities worldwide Our program is based on the fundamental principle that we are exposing engineers to human development issues within the context of the developing world and within the framework and limitations of a graduate program in civil engineering Our students earn an MS or PhD degree in Civil Engineering and or a Graduate Certificate in Engineering for Developing Communities Our objective is not to produce specialists in international development public health or social entrepreneurship we aspire to train engineers who upon graduation should be able to provide technical expertise to development agencies or various firms in a manner that recognizes the various technical and non technical facets of community development that lead to sustainable solutions MCEDC is housed in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado Boulder It was established on April 1 2009 thanks to a generous endowment from the Mortenson Family and
