We are a group of professional engineers, architects, scientists and others from Minnesota who aim to implement EWB-USA’s mission. The Minnesota Professional Chapter has project teams implementing solutions for communities in need across the globe while also providing professional mentors for the student chapters in the state, at the U of MN and MNSU Mankato. 

EWB-USA Mission

EWB-USA 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. 

What do we do?

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.
