About Us

MCEDC Info Card

The Mortenson Center in Engineering for Developing Communities (MCEDC) combines education, research, and outreach to provide sustainable and appropriate solutions to the endemic problems faced by the people on our planet who are most in need. We train engineers to recognize the issues at the core of development challenges, and collaborate with partners across the CU-Boulder campus and the world to create sustainable, scalable, evidence-based and multidisciplinary solutions to international development problems. Our program provides multiple pathways for engineers to enter the field of development engineering or to simply understand better the key facets of global challenges that they will face in a traditional position within a multinational engineering firm.
