Engineers Without Borders

Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA) is a nonprofit humanitarian organization established to support community-driven development programs worldwide through partnerships that design and implement sustainable engineering projects.

Girls Engineering Change (GEC)

College engineering students (both women and men) host workshops, usually on Saturday mornings for 1.5 – 2 hours, where they assemble small engineering devices with youth aged 8-14 from the Triangle area. Their mission is to show girls that they can change the world through engineering and donate most of the kits built in these workshops.

Helping Hand Project

The HHP uses 3D printing and innovative design solutions to provide recreational prosthetic devices to people with upper limb differences. Their chapter specializes in custom designs for recipients who would not benefit from a standard 3D printed device. They take on unique cases. They also have a Support team that connects with families throughout the device development process and creates care packages for the children in order to add a personal touch.


SciBridge was motivated by the desire to continue and grow the scientific discussion between U.S. and east African scientists around exciting scientific topics in sustainable energy development. SciBridge ships kits that contain almost everything needed to perform novel experiments around the theme of materials for sustainable energy.

The SciBridge project is based at North Carolina State University and Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda.


Applied Experiences

Aerial Robotics

A multi-disciplinary team of NC State students that specializes in designing and building autonomous search and rescue aerial systems. ARC competes in the Student Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS) Competition annually.

Embedded Machine Learning

The EML club provides workshops in Python (the most popular language for Machine Learning), vision processing (a very popular application for machine learning), and embedded systems (the actual hardware these products are deployed on), as well as many more to come.

FIRST Alumni Association at NCSU

The FIRST Alumni Association conducts a variety of events throughout the year, conducting outreach, working with teams throughout North Carolina, and running a popular Robot in 3 Days team. They also volunteer at events across the country.

High-Powered Rocketry

The High-Powered Rocketry Club, or Tacho Lycos (Speedy Wolf) competes in the NASA Student Launch competition. The competition involves designing, creating, and using a solid fueled rocket to launch and land a payload that is used in various mission scenarios.

Liquid Rocketry Lab

The Liquid Rocketry Lab team is a liquid propulsion and launch vehicle systems research team. They are racing to build the world’s first collegiate liquid powered rocket to reach the Karman line: the designated edge of space.

Pack Motorsports: Formula SAE

The Pack Motorsports Formula team competes in the Society of Automotive Engineers’ (SAE) design competition annually to build and optimize the fastest cars. They have over two decades’ worth of experience and have seen numerous top ten overall finishes.

Pack Motorsports: Baja
