About Us

Engineers Without Borders – 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 EWB Greater Austin Chapter helps improve the quality of life in communities in need via implementation of simple engineering technologies. Our projects tend towards water, renewable resources, and community health. While improving the standard of living of communities abroad, we also foster the development of future professionals from a myriad of academic and professional disciplines since our projects require knowledge and insight from various fields.

History of EWB – Greater Austin Chapter

In the summer of 2009, the University of Texas at Austin student and Central Texas professional chapters merged to form the Greater Austin Chapter. Our large and diverse chapter allows for better collaboration across the experience spectrum. The inquisitiveness of our younger members combined with the experience of our more tenured members creates momentum that ensures we make a positive impact on our partner communities.
