Our Mission

“University of Maine Engineers Without Borders strives to foster a worldwide cultural awareness and a strong sense of volunteerism in today’s future leaders through sustainable and community-driven engineering projects.”

Our Vision

Engineering practice and design have a profound effect on well-being. As problem solvers, we have the capacity and the responsibility to evaluate solutions with respect to their ecological, social and economic impacts. We envision UMaine Engineers Without Borders as a catalyst in the local and global transition to a sustainable culturally-conscious world.


We meet Monday every week from 7 – 8 pm at the Innovation Center on the UMaine campus. Please feel free to stop in at any meeting. We often have presentations from professional engineers and other speakers!
