Topic: Engineers Without Borders Austin: A Year in Review
EWB-USA is a nonprofit humanitarian organization established to support community-driven development programs worldwide through partnerships that design and implement sustainable engineering projects while creating transformative experiences that enrich global perspectives and create responsible leaders. The Greater Austin chapter of EWB-USA (EWB-GA) was formed by merging The University of Texas at Austin student chapter and Central Texas professional chapter in the summer of 2009. The passion, drive, and inquisitiveness of our younger members combined with the technical and project management experience of our more tenured members creates tremendous momentum that ensures we make a positive, lasting impact on our partner communities. EWB-GA is dedicated to providing life quality improvements to communities in need via the implementation of simple engineering technologies. Our projects tend toward water, renewable resources, and community health, requiring the insight and knowledge of students and professionals from a variety of fields. Our project locations vary from Peru to Guatemala to local projects at home in Austin. There is plenty going on in the Greater Austin Chapter of EWB-USA. Whether you can commit a couple hours a month locally or a couple weeks abroad, join us at our next general meeting or social gathering to learn more.
