Engineers without borders is a student led society which aims to reduce poverty and poor living conditions internationally through education and engineering. We do outreach into schools to teach teenagers about how intelligent but basic engineering can be a solution to poor sanitation and a lack of clean water. We also educate ourselves through talks and conferences about the main barriers to development and what we can do to bring these down. This year some of our groups are working on a system for emptying pit latrines and a wind power project.
We are not just looking for engineers! We need teachers and business students, mathematicians and scientists as well as social scientists. So if you are interested, drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and come along to a Monday meeting 5-6p.m. in LT511.
