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 212 for the East Africa meeting or Wednesdays from 9-10 in Eaton 202 for the Latin America meeting.
