Engineers without Borders
BOston University Chapter
Undergraduates eager to use their engineering skills to
tackle challenges keeping those in the poorest communities
from living healthy lives
Established in 2006 at Boston University, we are a group of college students that share an enthusiasm for bringing change and progress to developing communities.
By directly partnering with developing communities, we aim to improve their quality of life through the implementation of environmentally sustainable, equitable, and economical engineering projects while developing internationally responsible engineers and engineering students.
Currently, we are focusing our efforts on improving the health and quality of life in the community of Naluja, Zambia. We aim to do this through various initiatives that are detailed in our projects.
As a collegiate chapter, we are directly affiliated with the national chapter of Engineers Without Borders USA, a non-profit organization that supports supports community-driven development programs worldwide by collaborating with local partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects, while creating transformative experiences and responsible leaders.
Currently, EWB-USA's projects span 47 countries on 5 continents in an effort to close the disparities between communities around our globe. This developmental overhaul is achieved the holistic treatment of all facets of community, including engineering projects for water supply, sanitation, civil works, structures, energy, agriculture, and information systems.
