We have a vision.
A world where people everywhere have equal access to the benefits of engineering.
Coming up in the academic year 2017-18...
We have an exciting calender lined up, including:
- paired events with EWB Bristol
- a weekend trip to the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT)
- debates on current issues faced both in and out of the UK
- hands-on training and workshops
- outreach projects with local schools
Engineers Without Borders is an international organisation and registered charity in the UK which aims to inspire, enable and influence global responsibility through engineering.
To lead a movement that inspires, enables and influences global responsibility through engineering.
Globally responsible engineering 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 engineering as a catalyst to significantly alter the world around us and the way we live our lives.
With our Outreach Programme we regularly visit to local schools to inspire the next generation and show young people how they can be part of the solution by engaging with engineering and being more globally responsible citizens.
Our members become ambassadors for 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.
Community Sessions & Socials
Take part in lively discussions, make new friends at a social and gain a new perspective in our talks from guest speakers. Join us on trips and take part in the challenges.
Workshops & Projects
Learn new practical skills, work in teams and solve problems through challenges and branch projects that help the local community.
Every year, students from all engineering disciplines are able to travel to places such as Africa, South America, and the Far East to undertake and manage a variety of different projects. We have built a strong International Member-Led Partnership working with a development charity in Ghana, Volunteer West Africa, where a team of students spent a summer designing a rainwater harvesting system for the compound. We are continuing to grow our relationship with VWA with future trips to Ghana planned so there will be exciting opportunities to get involved. Read more about the project on the MLP team's Ghana blog.
