Engineers Without Borders is an internationally recognised name in the field of international development. Branches worldwide consist of students and professionals who share a common interest in appropriate technologies and sustainable development through engineering.
EWB-Ireland aims to bridge the gap between academia, industry and NGOs to give Irish engineers and scientists an opportunity to learn about and contribute to sustainable development globally.
EWB is currently undergoing some changes, if you're interested in getting involved please contact Aoife at firstname.lastname@example.org
The EWB-Ireland Research Programme provides a network for anyone who wishes to undertake a technical sustainable development-based research project.
EWB-Ireland branches are located throughout the country to organise events at a local level.
This year EWB Ireland is assisting The Busoga Trust in identifying a suitable candidate for a three month professional placement in Jinja, Uganda. The Busoga Trust provides sustainable access to safe water, improved sanitation and comprehensive hygiene & health education to communities in rural Uganda.
