Want to volunteer?
International volunteering opportunities are advertised in a big chunk in February and then in ones and twos throughout the year. Register for our newsletter or find us on facebook or twitter to find out what's happening.
Placements are based in both developing countries and last 3-12 months. We prioritise applications from people with four or fewer years of technical experience.
To help us offer more placements we need your help with fundraising.
Looking for volunteers?
Our placement volunteers are fully funded student and graduate engineers, who can provide support to your organisations. We can also provide other types of support.
Help support the EWB-UK Placements Programme
Fundraising is a vital part of ensuring the success of our placements. We aim to raise £20 000 for our placements programme in 2013, but we'll need your help to make sure we hit this target! The link below will take you to our fundraising guide for volunteers.
The programme is run by a team of diverse and motivated students and graduates supported by a network of experienced development professionals, and we are always looking for new members to join our team. For 'placements 2013' we are looking for people who can offer technical support to our volunteers in the field.
Partnerships led by our members
Engineers Without Borders UK’s members sometimes lead international work by developing partnerships and projects separate to our main placements, education and research activities. Typically these are led by engineering students at UK universities who are members of our network of branches.
