About Us

Who We Are

The Detroit Professional Chapter of Engineers Without Borders is a group of dynamic and hard-working professionals from around Metro Detroit committed to helping communities in our region and around the world attain a better quality of life. We are a chapter of Engineers Without Borders-USA, a non-profit organization with over 13,000 members and 300 chapters across the country.

Our Mission

Our vision is a world in which the communities we serve have the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs. EWB-Detroit is focused on designing and implementing sustainable projects in cooperation with communities in developing countries to improve the lives of their inhabitants through basic infrastructure such as clean drinking water and proper sanitation. We also serve as mentors for the student EWB chapters throughout Michigan as they work on projects of their own.
