EWB-OSU is the Oregon State University student chapter of EWB-USA, a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities world-wide to improve their quality of life through the implementation of environmentally and economically sustainable engineering projects, while developing internationally responsible engineering students.
EWB-USA’s vision is a world in which every community has the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs.
Engineers Without Borders USA builds a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs and equip leaders to solve the world’s most pressing challenges.
- Create a sense of excitement and enthusiasm about solving technical development problems within a social and cultural context
- Organize project teams to design and implement engineering projects.
- Publicize research opportunities and encourage students to undertake research on technical development problems
- Work with the profesional engineering community to develop and strengthen the engineering skills of student members
We invite any interested student, regardless of major, to get involved. Non-engineers are especially welcome to check us out, since the success of our projects relies on the collaboration of many individuals with varied perspectives.
The EWB-OSU constitution is the guiding document for all chapter activities. Everything we do is governed by our rules and bylaws.
