Engineers Without Borders aims to alleviate poverty by removing barriers to development through appropriate technology. It's not just for Engineers - anyone is welcome to join! We run lots of amazing projects here in Sheffield and are establishing international partnerships too. We have a pedal power project (power smoothie makers, speakers... whatever you like, just by pedalling an old bike!), a wind power group, a water project, a health and mobility project and an urban agriculture group. If that's not enough we also run outreach sessions in local schools, and some events where you can learn about awesome things engineering can do! This video shows you just some of what we do

In 2011 we were named Society of The Year, along with three further awards at the activities awards, and in 2014 we won the Most Enterprising Society award. To find out more about us, and what we do, visit our website or facebook page. Feel free to email us if you have any questions or would like to join our mailing list.
