Engineers Without Borders
Meetings are Mondays at 6:30 pm in 19 Moon Library
EWB-USA is a non-profit organization that helps create a more stable and prosperous world. The organization strives to meet basic human needs of less fortunate communities around the world by providing them with necessities such as clean water, power, sanitation and education. EWB-USA is also well represented on college campuses across the country, making it a catalyst in the movement to educate the next generation of socially conscious engineers. Our chapter, ESF-EWB, strives to provide engineering solutions to communities in Latin America in need of better infrastructure. Members work on designing projects and get the chance to travel and experience different cultures.
The SUNY ESF chapter of Engineers Without Borders-USA was created in fall 2003 by one Syracuse University Environmental Engineering student and two SUNY ESF Forest Engineering students. Throughout its existence, the ESF chapter of EWB has been entirely student-run. Students decide what projects the chapter will work on and are in charge of the entire project. Faculty and professionals are welcomed as mentors to supplement the students' design process.
