NMT Engineers Without Borders

We are the Engineers Without Borders interest group at NMT. Our purpose reflects that of Engineers Without Borders – USA: “to partner with disadvantaged communities to improve their quality of life through implementations of environmentally sound and economically sustainable engineering projects, while developing internationally responsible engineering students.” To that end, we intend to:

Create a sense of excitement and enthusiasm about solving technical development problems within a cultural and social context by bringing together those who are interested and encouraging discussion amongst them to solve the problem together

Organize project teams to design and implement engineering projects either locally or internationally

Publicize research opportunities and encourage students to undertake research on technical development problems, and to ensure that the completed research is returned to the EWB-USA database

Take the lead on technical development problems that have an “environmentally sound, economically sustainable” bent to them

Work with EWB-USA to ensure the quality of the engineering package and the end product for the community
