ASCE and Engineers Without Borders
November 28, 2007

In an effort to improve the quality of life in developing
communities worldwide, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has formalized an affiliation agreement with Engineers Without Borders – USA. (EWB). The agreement, which was approved at the meeting of ASCE’s board of direction on October 31, 2007 in Orlando, Fla., establishes a relationship to provide assistance with engineering needs through the training and participation of civil engineers and engineering students.

EWB-USA activities range from constructing sustainable systems that developing communities can own and operate without external assistance, to empowering communities by enhancing local, technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills. These projects are initiated by, and completed with, contributions from the host community working with EWB-USA project teams.

In cooperation with EWB-USA, ASCE aims to assist civil engineers and civil engineering students in increasing their awareness and education on the social, economic, environmental and cultural impacts of engineering while fostering the spread of appropriate and sustainable technological solutions within the day-to-day practice of engineering.
