Engaging Students

EWB's mission resonates with aspiring young engineers. The organisation has grown rapidly to over 1200 members in just over ten years and the majority of its members are university students or young engineers in the first few years of their professional careers.

The EWB Challenge aims to engage students in learning for sustainable development. EWB will support the engagement process with a range of activities:

  • Consultation on the incorporation of the EWB Challenge into the first year curriculum.
  • Delivery of presentations to students on EWB and the EWB Challenge design brief.
  • Coordination of university participation and communication via the EWB Challenge website.
  • Coordination of regionally-based show case events for participating students to display their designs, meet other participating students and learn more about EWB programs.
