Engineers without Borders at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Engineers Without Borders-USA is a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students.
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB@UWM) works in coordination with EWB-USA, a non-profit humanitarian organization established to improve the quality of life in developing communities. Each sustainable engineering project is designed and implemented by partnerships between local and international groups, individuals, professionals and students. This process trains students to be socially responsible engineers and global citizens.
