The award-winning Engineering for People Design Challenge prepares young engineers for real life design challenges whilst crucially considering their impact. The challenge which is integrated into undergraduate courses allows students to explore the ethical, environmental, social and cultural aspects of engineering design-  harnessing their skills whilst also benefiting people and the planet.

For the first time the 2019/20 design challenge is a collaboration between three Engineers Without Borders organisations; South Africa, UK and USA. In total 7,000+ students in the UK, Ireland, South Africa and the USA are partaking across the world creating innovative and responsible solutions.
