We're changing for the better! Here's the first glimpse of our refreshed brand identity. 

Engineering has a vital role to play in delivering solutions to meet fundamental human needs. We inspire and support people to respond to global challenges.

Today - Thursday 5th March 2015 - is World Book Day and EWB-UK is donating its entire library to Book Aid for Africa, who will forward them onto a university or technical college in Africa.

On Monday, 23rd February the president of Engineers Without Borders UK's (EWB-UK) Bristol University branch, Conor McGlacken, fought off tough competition from students across the UK to win the 2015 Student Volunteer of the Year Award, as part of the annual Student Volunteering Week celebrations in the House of Commons.

Two of our placements with Mexico-based partner IRRI are still open.

You can still apply to our 2015 international placements until Sunday, 22 February! Engineers Without Borders UK has placements for engineering undergraduates, graduates and early career engineers as well as for those with a background in educational development.

This is a great opportunity to lead a project investigating, developing and proposing a new flagship EWB-UK programme aimed at educating people about development, the role that engineering and technology can play and appropriate ways to engage in effecting sustainable human development.

“I chose EWB-UK because it knows how to utilise my engineering skills in a way that helps others. The most significant change for me from my placement was realising the power of engineering when applied properly.” Matt, Placement Volunteer, Nepal, 2013-14

On Saturday 1st November, EWB-UK hosted a Returned Volunteer Debrief for international volunteers.

EWB-UK Remembers Kim Waterhouse

EWB-UK is very sad to learn that Kim Waterhouse died last week. Kim was a civil engineer, a humanitarian and a teacher, and his death is a very sad loss for the many different people he inspired and influenced.

We are looking for an experienced professional fundraiser to join our team and lead our fundraising and communications efforts. This is an amazing opportunity; we have great stories to tell and extraordinary networks to draw upon.
