Brief Description

Engineers Without Borders is open to all students who want to make a difference in our world and become part of a movement towards more globally responsible engineering.

Our present actions are crital to the future of our planet, and we urgently need to start balancing the needs of our people with the needs of our environment. Here at Engineers Without Borders, we aim to inspire young engineers and encourage lifelong, meaningful commitment to globally responsible engineering.

As the Newcastle University chapter of EWB, we are part of a national and international support network working to drive change. 

Society Activities

We aim to deliver a range of activities across the year that all students can get involved in, whether you're an engineer or not! 

We will be hosting regular webinars with guest speakers from a range of specialisms and backgrounds, as well as discussion panels and workshops. We hope this will help you as a member to broaden your knowledge of sustainable engineering and network with industry professionals.

We see the importance of educating young people on sustainability at an early age, so outreach activities are an important part of what we do as a society, including visiting local schools to inspire the next generation of young engineers.

Meeting Days, Times and Venues

No prior knowledge needed, just the desire for positive change.  

We aim to run both online and in-person events regularly throughout this academic year, so that everyone can get involved! Events will usually be held on evenings and weekends to fit around your studies.

All of our upcoming events will be advertised in advance through our mailing list and on our social media. We hope to see you there!
