Engineers Without Borders

Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is a multi-national, non-profit, humanitarian organization dedicated to improving life for people living in developing countries through sustainable engineering projects. If you are up for a challenge and love helping people, EWB is for you!

Our Vision

Our goal is to design and implement sustainable engineering projects in developing communities world-wide. By working closely with people of different regions, we gain valuable engineering and cultural experience as we take on challenging and rewarding tasks.

Our vision is a world in which the communities we serve have the capacity to ustainably meet their basic human needs, and that our members have enriched global perspectives and transformative experiences


  • Sustainability. The communities we serve must be able to independently maintain and, if necessary, replicate any technologies we introduce.
  • Education. Our projects involve significant engineering design work that challenges our students. Students will also be exposed to aspects of project management, including financial management, construction, logistics, and fundraising.
  • Cultural Awareness. To ensure that we design for the specific needs of a community and to give our students a global education, we must seek to understand the culture of each community we serve.

We are a chapter of the national Engineers Without Borders USA organization, a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide to improve their quality of life.


Every man can transform the world from one of monotony and drabness to one of excitement and adventure.
