Engineers Without Borders USA is a non-profit organization that funds, designs, and builds engineering projects in the developing world. There are more than 200 chapters nationwide. These chapters are working together to fight poverty and disease around the world. They work to overcome the development problems of impoverished regions by implementing sustainable engineering solutions.
EWB-UAH is a student chapter of EWB-USA. It’s teamed with UAH faculty, local engineers, and other philanthropic organizations. Meetings are held weekly, often with engineers from the Huntsville professional chapter of EWB.
EWB-UAH meets weekly to research, design, and work logistics on international engineering projects. We work with the coaching and oversight of professional engineers and the support of faculty. But the design work is done by students. This is a chance for students to get real-world engineering experience and work one-on-one with veteran engineers from numerous Huntsville companies.
If you’re a student at UAH (undergraduate or graduate) and you’re interested in finding out more, you can either drop by a Tuesday afternoon meeting or send us an email. There are lots of opportunities to get involved, and you don't have to be an engineer! However much or little time you have to give, we’d welcome you to be part of this effort.
For more information, stop by one of our meetings which are held every Tuesday at 7:00pm in Tech Hall N221A or MAE library.
