Engineering Students Building a Better World, One Community at a Time
Engineers Without Borders Portland State is a student chapter of Engineers Without Borders USA. We are dedicated to assisting developing communities around the world. With students from a variety of backgrounds, disciplines, and skills who work in concert with faculty advisors, professional mentors, and local community leaders, we asses and implement engineering projects that provide basic human needs, such as clean water, power, sanitation, and education. We believe that we can empower developing communities to improve their own conditions while developing our skills as professionals and as leaders.
EWB-USA PSU’s current international work focuses primarily in Ethiopia and Nicaragua. We work with local governments and community leaders to identify problems we can address. After extensive assessment and data collection, we work with professional mentors and faculty advisors to design an effective engineering solution, which we then propose to the community and government. When stakeholders have agreed on a solution, EWB-USA PSU works to raise the funding necessary to build the project and supervises its implementation.
