"Low Tech, High Impact" projects that save lives while developing the next generation of globally aware engineers and other technical professionals
Engineers Without Borders (EWB) - Southern AZ Professional Chapter is a non-profit organization established in 2007 to partner with developing communities located in or near Southern AZ (eg Mexico) in order to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves the implementation of environmentally and economically sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training responsible non-engineering and engineering professionals and students.
Volunteering with EWB
Our success IS our volunteers - nothing would be possible without their support.
There are both non-engineering and engineering aspects to our projects. We incorporate volunteers with backgrounds in business, journalism, health, education and much more. Projects need help with health assessments, cultural education, trip planning, fund raising, and grant writing. Engineering p roject "types" (% breakdown) include:
- Energy Projects - 16%
- Structures Projects - 10%
- Water Supply Projects - 50%
- Sanitation Projects - 11%
- Bridge/Road Projects - 4%

All project participants are asked to promote high engineering standards by following the American Society of Civil Engineers' Code of Ethics
EWB offers you several great opportunities to become involved in building a better world, one community at a time.
