About EWB-I

Engineers Without Borders International (EWB-I) is an international association of national EWB/ISF groups. EWB-I helps the member groups develop their capacity to assist developing communities in their respective countries.

The member groups of EWB-I share the mission to partner with disadvantaged communities to improve their quality of life through education and implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while promoting global dimensions of experience for engineers, engineering students, and similarly motivated non-engineers. EWB-I creates links between these like-minded organizations and cuts across national borders.

Projects coordinated by individual EWB/ISF member groups are grassroots.  EWB-I member groups ensure that they are not competing with private engineering firms.

EWB-I provides a unique platform for its member groups, affiliates, and outside organizations to:

  • Create a new generation of Global Engineers
  • Contribute to meeting the SDGs through capacity building in local projects
  • Collaborate on projects and studies worldwide
  • Share ideas, experiences, technical knowledge, and documentation
  • Develop partnerships on community projects
  • Address more global issues and projects
  • Coordinate student exchanges, internships, and professional volunteers
  • Advertise meetings and events
  • Train and connect engineering professionals and students around the world
  • Create synergy between their members

Engineers Without Borders International is pursuing its vision for “a sustainable world where engineering enables long term positive social and global development for the benefit of people and the environment everywhere.”

EWB-I seeks to promote collaboration so that collectively we can achieve more than the sum of our parts and fulfill our mission “to be the beating heart of the engineering movements for sustainable global development, building and evolving engineering capacity throughout the world.”
