The University of Rochester Chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB-UR) seeks to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life through the design and implementation of sustainable engineering projects. We provide an environment for students to apply their academic skills to real world problems in an internationally responsible and globally beneficial way. Our vision is a world in which all communities have the capacity to meet their basic human needs.
We are the University of Rochester Chapter of Engineers Without Borders USA. Our organization designs and executes projects to find sustainable solutions to engineering problems. Our chapter has projects internationally and locally, as well as a variety of on campus events. We currently have an ongoing project in the Dominican Republic, Tanzania, and Rochester, NY.
I joined EWB because I wanted to use my engineering education to make a difference in the world." -Gina Demeo
