What is Engineers Without Borders Bath?
We have a vision.
Using engineering to ensure a safe and just future for all.
Engineers Without Borders Bath is a community of individuals who are driven to make a positive impact on the world through innovation in fields such as engineering, design, electronics etc. A part of an international movement, we aim to inspire and educate others to put global responsibility and sustainability at the heart of engineering and design. Of course, we welcome members from any and all backgrounds- you don't have to be an engineer to join EWB! Students from every STEM and non-STEM discipline are wanted here - we need everyone to be involved in ensuring a safe and just future for all.
Globally responsible innovation is about recognising that we are all citizens of one planet and that our actions affect the lives of others. It is about consistently applying social and environmental considerations wherever we are and it is about using innovative solutions as a catalyst to significantly alter the world around us and the way we live our lives. This can be done by promoting sustainable and human-centred approaches to design in all aspects of our lives, and working towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
With our Outreach Programme, we regularly visit local schools to inspire the next generation and show young people how they can be part of the solution by engaging with STEM and being more globally responsible citizens.
Our members become ambassadors for STEM and the society as they join us in running fun workshops in local classrooms and at science fairs. They develop new skills and confidence while helping to make a difference to young people’s lives.
Events & Socials
Take part in lively discussions and design challenges, make new friends at socials and gain a new perspective in our talks from guest speakers. Every year we run a variety of STEM talks and workshops to teach members new skills and introduce them to engaging STEM topics. One of the events for 2022/23 is our weekly Sustainabili-Tea talks, where we have a themed discussion about key topics in sustainability over a cup of tea. It's a great way to get to know like-minded people from across the university. We have plenty of other socials planned so keep an eye out!
Workshops & Designathons
Learn new practical skills, work in teams and solve problems through challenges and designathons that consider sustainable and responsible design approaches.
