Engineers Without Borders UK offering opportunities for engineering students ...

Engineers Without Borders UK (EWB UK) are offering a unique opportunity for engineering students and graduates to gain skills, experience and a global perspective to complement their engineering education. Over the last 5 years, we have sent over 100 experienced engineers to our 25 partner organisations.

For 2018, EWB have 25 engineering volunteering positions available across Africa, Latin America and Asia. This year volunteers can work on engineering projects in the water, sanitation and hygiene, clean energy or built environment sectors for 6, 9 or 12 months. Volunteer projects range from designing fuel-efficient cookstoves in India, testing drinking water for arsenic and fluoride in Mexico to supporting the construction of a hospital in Liberia.  

There are 15 opportunities available for professionals and postgraduates (including 6 Senior Fellow roles) and up to 10 Junior Fellowship opportunities. The Junior Fellowships are aimed at university students and recent graduates who want to learn more about international development with the support of experienced volunteer engineers. They offer students a great opportunity to develop their engineering skills and use them for good.
