Everyone deserves the chance to live in a world where they can achieve their potential and have healthy, happy lives. In reality this is not the case. We are all impacted by climate change, increasing urbanisation and a rapidly expanding global population.
As a member of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Birmingham you can be the one creating sustainable solutions to these challenges by becoming part of a national charity.
As part of EWB Birmingham you can:
Boost your own skills enhancing your CV
Meet new people
Enjoy fun and hands-on workshops
Attend trips outside of Birmingham
Have fun at one of our many socials (such as bowling, laser quest or nights out)!
Not only does EWB carry out global humanitarian work; the charity also increases awareness of the nature of problems solved by engineers on a local scale.
As part of EWB Birmingham, you will have the opportunity to inspire children to study STEM subjects by offering fun engineering based workshops in local schools, volunteering at The Big Bang Fair and becoming a registered STEM ambassador. These could be the future leaders of society, or the future engineers that develop innovative products.
In addition to these exciting opportunities, you can also get involved with the Cameroon Catalyst project which works in partnership with the University of Southampton to develop a solution to water and sanitation issues faced by a village in Cameroon. By participating in this project your design could be the one preventing waterborne diseases and aiding development of a poverty stricken area.
