We are a student chapter of the national organization Engineers Without Borders USA at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Started in 2019 by a group of determined engineering students, EWB UTK proudly serves East Tennessee and the world with our international and local missions.


Mission & Vision

Engineers Without Borders builds a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs and equip leaders to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. Our vision is a world in which every community has the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs. In the world’s toughest places, Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA) is partnering with communities to meet their basic human needs. We’re building footbridges to provide pathways to opportunities. We’re installing solar panels to bring light where it is dark. We’re digging for water so hope can spring from the ground. Each project builds the foundation for a community to thrive for years to come.

How Our Mission Works

Our mission works because our people work hard. We have a strong group of engineers dedicated to making the world a better place, regardless of borders and barriers.
