Engineers Without Borders - Georgia Tech is one of 143 student chapters of Engineers Without Borders - USA. With over 150 members coming from majors from civil engineering to architecture to business, we are one of the biggest student chapters in the country.
EWB-GT supports community-driven development programs worldwide by collaborating with local partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects, while creating transformative experiences and responsible leaders.
We provide opportunities for personal development for our members through their involvement with several international and local projects. Students are able to personally design and implement solutions for health and infrastructure needs in the developing world; this necessitates the development of a multidimensional means of analyzing and planning systems, and thus contributes to a holistic education.
We also work to promote a better understanding of global health concerns and humanitarian engineering, both within our member-base and throughout the Georgia Tech community.
Engineers Without Borders is not just for engineers. We need and welcome members from all majors. We look for members who have a passion to help others and improve lives of those who lacks access to some of the most basic needs of life such as clean drinking water, proper sanitation system etc.
We are also not a mission trip organization. Our students personally lead these development projects and are involved in the same community for many years. All scheduled travel is completely dependent on the amount of design work that had been completed and whether there is sufficient funding for project construction. Only the most dedicated members are selected to travel.
