Mission Statement

EWB-USA 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.

Description

Engineers Without Borders - USA (EWB-USA) is a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students.

The San Diego Professional Chapter (EWB-SD) spreads both the vision and the mission of EWB-USA by partnering with disadvantaged communities to improve their quality of life through environmentally and economically sustainable engineering projects. EWB-SD engages developing communities in resolving particular infrastructure needs that the community itself has identified. Projects include but are not limited to the design and construction of water distribution, waste-water treatment, sanitation, energy, and shelter systems. The overall objective in every project is to incorporate and train the community in all phases of the sustainable projects to ensure ownership, appropriateness and long-term effectiveness. EWB involves students in every step of the process, enabling them to learn firsthand about solutions to the problems of the developing world. EWB-SD works together with EWB Student Chapters at San Diego State University and University of California, San Diego to improve the quality of life in various communities worldwide.
