Who are we?

Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW) is an international nonprofit network of students & professionals united by their shared passion for technical sustainability. We believe that young engineers & scientists are critical to solving the biggest sustainability challenges of today and tomorrow.

We are the University of Maine Chapter – a group of students dedicated to improving others’ quality of life. Specifically, we work with communities, local and international on sustainable engineering projects. Our club may have engineers in the name, but it is not limited to engineering majors! We have a design team and a membership and fundraising team needing new members!

We are currently working on a trail bridge for the Orono Land Trust. Previously, we worked on a clean water access project in Walugoma, Uganda. We have also completed a project in Dulce Vivir de Copan, Honduras, where we revitalized their sanitation system. You can find more information on this trip here. We are also seeking out more local wastewater treatment and community betterment projects.

If you are passionate about humanitarian projects please contact us at ewb.umainechapter@gmail.com or come to our meetings on Tuesdays at 7 pm in Room 111 in Ferland on the University of Maine, Orono campus.
