The UCLA student chapter of Engineers without Borders was founded in 2006 by a group of diverse students who were dedicated to using their education to create a lasting, positive impact in the world. Since our inception, our club has become strongly involved in several international projects in developing countries and has successfully completed two sustainable projects - building a schoolhouse in Thailand and constructing rainwater catchment systems in Guatemala. Through our projects, we help our students develop their engineering skills and shape them into international humanitarians.
To support community driven development programs worldwide by collaborating with local
partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects while creating transformative experiences and responsible leaders.
Our vision is a world in which communities have the capacity to meet their basic human needs, and that our members have enriched global perspectives through the innovative professional educational opportunities provided by EWB-UCLA.
