EWB logoEngineers Without Borders aim to inspire, enable and influence the engineering community to serve all people and the planet better than ever before.

Engineers Without Borders University of Birmingham is the Birmingham chapter of EWB-UK, a national charity that looks to improve the standard of life of everyone around the world through science, technology and engineering. We are one of the 30+ branches in the UK.
