EWB-UK launched EWB Challenge 2014/15 for universities in the UK and Ireland in what will be its biggest year to date. This year 23 universities signed up to take part in the Challenge. During the next academic year over 3,500 students are expected to participate in the programme.

The EWB-UK Academic Training Day is a fantastic opportunity for engineering & technical design academics interested in international development to get more involved, include it in their teaching and develop their own research. We are running one in London on 18th September.

This year, EWB UK is sending 25 placement volunteers to 12 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. Our volunteers are setting off to work with our partner organisations to have a direct impact on reducing poverty in their communities while learning how to best use their engineering skills to remove barriers to human development.
Consider supporting the Placements Appeal 2014 to help us to ensure that this programme is a success this year and in the future.
London Scottish Football Club

EWB-UK is delighted to announce that we will be working with London Scottish Football Club for their match day on 13 December against Pontypridd.

This new partnership presents an opportunity for us to increase the awareness of our activities outside of the engineering community.

Recruitment closed.

Engineers Without Borders UK’s vision is a world where everyone has access to the engineering they need for a life free from poverty.  Through our members, partners and activities we inspire, inform and support people to respond to global challenges.  We work to find new paths of sustainable development and to create opportunities to harness appropriate technology and engineering skills to enhance people’s lives.

The National Volunteer Training Weekend (NVTW) is a whole weekend of training and networking for EWB-UK volunteers. It is designed by us - the members - for us, and aims to make EWB-UK a greater organisation. This year it is being hosted by the University of Birmingham. Get your ticket now and join us.
