ABOUT

EWB-MSOE is a student chapter of Engineers Without Borders - USA (EWB-USA) a nonprofit humanitarian engineering organization whose mission is to build a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs. EWB-USA’s highly skilled volunteers work with communities to find appropriate solutions for their infrastructure needs. With the assistance of professional engineers from the EWB - Wisconsin Professional Partners Chapter, EWB-MSOE students partner with the municipality of Joyabaj, Guatemala in the design and implementation of their engineering projects. Examples of past projects include schools, water systems, and vehicle and pedestrian bridges that ensure the rural communities will not be cut off from education, healthcare, and economic development. The majority of each year is spent assessing, designing, planning, and fundraising to support at least one implementation trip generally in the spring.  To learn more about our projects, click here.
