“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.”
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 Tuesday every week from 7 – 8 pm at the fabulous Innovation Center. Join us! We often have talks from professionals in the field, as well as free food!
