Engineers Without Borders

Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA) is a nonprofit humanitarian organization established to support community-driven development programs worldwide through partnerships that design and implement sustainable engineering projects. EWB-USA members, comprised of professional and student engineers or other disciplines, work with local communities and NGOs in over 45 developing countries around the world on projects such as water, renewable energy, sanitation and more. EWB-USA has grown from little more than a handful of members in 2002 to over 12,000 members today and has over 350 projects worldwide. EWB-USA maintains over 250 dedicated student and professional chapters, and has touched the lives of more than one million people.

The Trine University Student Chapter of EWB-USA was founded in the spring of 2014 and seeks to build a partnership with a developing community in Africa. As student members of EWB-USA, the chapter is involved in all stages of project development from planning to implementation. Although the focus is primarily engineering, students from any academic department are encouraged to become active members.
