N. Petrová MSc (Nikola)

Lecturer in Humanitarian Engineering

Over mij

I am a lecturer in Humanitarian Engineering within the Humanitarian Engineering group that is developing an MSc programme in Humanitarian Engineering. The programme aims to prepare engineers who will improve the lives of people from underserved and marginalized communities with appropriate and sustainable technology. My main focus is:

  • Humanitarian engineering education
  • Ethics of social innovations in the humanitarian engineering context
  • Curriculum design
  • Training
  • Challenge-based & interdisciplinary learning in the context of engineering education

I also work as the Assistant Project Leader of the CuriousU summer school and I was involved in organizing the Autumn Challenge Programme (powered by ECIU).

I come from the Czech Republic. I acquired my BSc degree in Social Pathology and Prevention in 2016 and in 2019, I graduated from Social Pedagogy (MSc.) from the University of Hradec Králové (CZE). In 2020, I acquired another MSc degree in Educational Science and Technology at the University of Twente.
