Engineers Without Borders (EWB-USA) UNC-CH Chapter is a student organization at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, founded for the purpose of facilitating UNC student involvement in international engineering and health projects organized or approved by EWB-USA. The goal of EWB is to partner with developing communities worldwide to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, which may address water and sanitation, energy, and waste concerns. Our chapter is involved with construction and design work, consulting, teaching, surveying, or other tasks as determined by project needs. In order to fulfill our goals and objectives, we will raise funds to support projects, facilitate collaboration between student groups and local engineers and other universities on development projects, and host speakers and seminars relevant to the role of the engineer in development work abroad. This chapter was formed in the summer of 2004 by graduate students in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at UNC-CH. If you have questions about the chapter’s work or are involved in a similar type of project, please contact one of our officers.
