We are the Rose-Hulman chapter of Engineers Without Borders. EWB-RHIT is an organization of students who design and implement sustainable engineering projects in developing communities world-wide. Our members gain valuable engineering and cultural experience by traveling to developing communities and engineering solutions to their unique problems. The projects we work on are initiated by and completed with contributions from the host community, which helps ensure that our work will be maintained after we leave.

Our chapter is part of the national Engineers Without Borders USA organization. EWB-USA is a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life. Since its founding in 2000, EWB-USA has run more than 80 projects in 35 countries.

Engineering. Sustainability. Community.
