About the Lehigh University Chapter:
Engineers Without Borders (LU-EWB) is a multidisciplinary group of students dedicated to learning about and tackling issues of global poverty, international development, and sustainability. Our mission is both to educate a new generation of students about global inequalities through on-campus speakers and workshops, as well as to use that knowledge to design workable solutions to real life problems. We are also 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 systems that developing communities can own and operate without external assistance, thereby empowering such communities by enhancing local, technical, managerial, and entrepreneurial skills. These projects are initiated by, and completed with, contributions from the host community working with our project team.
