Welcome to Rowan University EWB!

Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is a service organization that offers students the opportunity to utilize their knowledge, skills, and passion to solve real-world problems in developing countries. The mission of EWB is to partner with communities to improve the quality of life by implementing sustainable engineering solutions. 

These projects may include providing clean drinking water, safe transportation, sanitation, and shelter, or establishing industry. Rowan students have traveled to work on projects in places such as El Salvador, Honduras, Senegal, Thailand, and The Gambia.   

Professors and professional mentors with years of experience guide a multi-disciplinary team of students as they take on leadership roles and make important design decisions. Completing these projects requires a great amount of time and dedication, but the rewards are even greater.  The smiles on the faces of filter recipient families leave an everlasting impression on the members of the project team.

EWB projects provide students with the opportunity to establish worldwide relationships. The people of the communities welcome us with open arms, and are extremely grateful for our help. We are given the opportunity to experience their culture firsthand, and develop personal relationships with the community members. The students and community members come from very different backgrounds but are still able to work together to accomplish our goals and improve the quality of life for hundreds of people.
