Engineers Without Borders
Help us go to the 2020 EWB-USA National Conference in Reno, Nevada!

 

Who are we?

 

Our mission is to genuinely partner with individuals and organizations on infrastructure-based projects that provide educational opportunity for all, and improve the wellbeing of individuals who interact with the project.  As a club we aim to improve ourselves and the lives of others through partnerships formed on the idea that together we can make positive change. 

 

What have we done so far? 

 

We have been partnered with the community of Khwisero, Kenya, for sixteen years and have implemented 33 water and sanitation projects during that time. In November 2017, we hosted ten of our Kenyan partners in Bozeman and held a Summit to discuss EWB’s involvement in Kenya and to form M-Koko, EWB@MSU’s partner organization in Kenya that facilitates continued involvement in Khwisero. By participating in EWB@MSU, students have unique opportunities to improve engineering soft skills, work holistically on interdisciplinary projects and build professional relationships in the Bozeman community and beyond. 

 

What is the national conference? 

 

The National Conference is an annual event hosted by EWB-USA designed to connect and inspire the national community of EWB volunteers. Nearly 300 EWB chapters gather to share ideas through keynote speakers, breakout sessions and poster presentations on a wide variety of topics. Through communicating with different chapters who have worked in many different places around the globe, the National Conference allows our chapter to approach problems and support our Kenyan partners with a new and broadened perspective. 

 

How will the national conference help us achieve our mission and vision? 

 

The National conference helps us achieve our goals through giving us opportunities to learn from other chapters, and professionals. The various topics discussed give us insight and knowledge to improve the quality and scope of our projects. Furthermore, the conference gives us a chance to learn about external resources, and connect with various professionals who volunteer their time helping EWB chapters. Whether it’s when we are faced with problems or wish to expand into new areas, having access to this expertise will be a huge asset.
