Tufts Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is a student group at Tufts University that designs and
implements sustainable engineering projects in developing communities. EWB at Tufts is unique in
that it includes liberal arts and engineering students who work together to integrate the conceptual
and technical strengths of both schools and thereby strengthen our chapter's projects in the communities
in which we work.
Tufts EWB works with professional and faculty mentors to design technologically sound projects in
communities who express their desire to partner with us. To ensure the sustainability of our projects,
we build robust relationships with our partner communities and use participatory methods to address their
most pressing needs. Throughout the lifespan of our projects, the communities are highly involved in the
assessing, designing, implementing, and monitoring phases.
Engineers Without Borders is currently devoting most of its time and energy into designing sustainable
solutions for implementation when projects travel over winter and spring vacations. In the coming
semesters, we hope to collaborate with other student groups to bring interesting speakers to Tufts
that help bring awareness to our cause.
Please join us Tuesdays from 9-10 in Anderson 208 for the Malawi Project meeting, Wednesdays from 9-10 in Anderson 208 for the Nicaragua project meeting, and Mondays from 9-10 in Anderson 212 for the fundraising meeting.
