Mobile phones, Twitter and satellite images have revolutionized how humanitarian organizations conduct their work in countries devastated by war or natural disaster. A new course offered by EPFL this spring gives students a better grasp of the impact that new communication technologies can have on the ground. The course is offered as part of the social and human sciences program, which aims to increase students’ awareness of major issues and challenges the world will face in the future.
