Engineers Without Borders

Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is a national organization with a network of 21 chapters from coast to coast.  EWB is involved with projects in Africa, South and Southeast Asia, with a focus on sustainable development in the developing world.

Members of Western's EWB chapter have already started to apply for overseas placements.  Jason Teixeira, a first-year Mechanical Engineering Masters student, has been selected for a four month placement starting May 2005. Jason's specific location will be announced shortly.

Western's EWB chapter will be representing Western Engineering in a series of workshops entitled "Food for Thought" at local high schools.  The workshops focus on how a country's resources and infrastructure influence sustainable food production.  The first workshop of the series was well-received from students at Central Secondary School.  The group hopes to continue their success as they travel from school to school.

All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to participate with EWB.  If you are interested in getting involved, please contact or stop by the EWB office in SEB 1001C. Stay tuned for upcoming events.
