NDSU Engineers Without Borders
Welcome to the NDSU EWB page! We're the student-led chapter of an international organization that partners with communities around the globe to improve their quality of life, one day at a time!
Our vision is a world in which the communities we serve have the capacity to sustainable meet their basic human needs, and that our members have enriched global perspectives.
We are the North Dakota State University chapter of Engineers Without Borders. Engineers Without Borders (or EWB, for short) is a U.S. based organization with over 300 chapters, covering every single state. As an organization, we've had projects on every habited continent! (Antartica doesn't count) As a chapter, we've only been to Guatemala so far, but we have big plans for the future! In fact, this year we'll wrap things up in Guatemala and begin the process of selecting a new site for our next project for 2019.
This summer of 2018, we sent a team down to Las Tablitas, Guatemala to complete Phase 1 of our 2-part plan. While we were there, we worked with local labor and supplies to set the foundation for a new community center in addition to completing the water system project we started many years ago. For more information about our current and past projects, check out the "About" tab!
Our next goal as an organization is to raise funds for, and eventually complete, Phase 2 of our project in Las Tablitas, Guatemala. Optimistically, we'll leave this upcoming winter break to finish the community center, including a fully solar-powered electrical system and indoor plumbing! We're very excited to finish the project, and sad to bring an end to our time with the wonderful people of the village.
EWB, as an organization, helps young, aspiring engineers learn the process and systems that the professional world requires. It's a fully non-profit collection of recognized and highly accomplished engineers and social workers teaching young college students the skill they need.
