Engineers without Borders – Engineering

Student Organizations

EWB-USA’s mission is to support community-driven development programs worldwide by collaborating with local partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects while creating transformative experiences and responsible leaders.

EWB-IIT seeks to fulfill the goals of our mission statement through sustainable engineering while emphasizing leadership skills and providing the opportunity for students to implement their technical skills in ‘real life scenarios.

In order to meet our goals, we are always welcoming students from every area of study! We are Everyone without Borders! Sustainability encompasses not only engineering but also many political and social issues in developing countries. You don’t have to be an engineering major to join!
