Engineers Without Borders connects engineering students, seasoned professionals and engineering firms with U.S. and overseas communities that need their services.
More than 9,500 engineer-volunteers work on energy, agriculture, climate resiliency, disaster response, structural, civil works and other community-driven projects in 39 countries and 26 states. Current projects include designing a rainwater catchment system for a community garden serving urban youth in Connecticut; finding energy efficient ways to improve traffic safety in a low-income Pennsylvania town; and evaluating earthquake risk, increasing structural soundness and installing solar panels in fire stations across Puerto Rico.
