We inspire

By changing the focus of engineering education, Engineers Without Borders UK is driving the creation of a globally responsible generation capable of sustainably addressing our future challenges.


We Support

We are enabling them to understand that engineering is intrinsically linked to human development and the functioning of society and we support them to use their skills on development projects around the world.


We Influence

Our members around the UK are influencing the future of the engineering profession to be about more than just an investment in technology for technology’s sake or an abstract application of maths and theory.
