The Humanitech Program provides an educational and service philosophy that underlies several experiences and courses at Wake Forest University. The name was coined by students who have embraced its goals and is a play on words building on the motto of the University, Humanitate, and Technology. Humanitech defines a design and team philosophy centered around specific problems of high social value that incorporate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), such as the needs of an individual in our community or the need for conservation technology.
