Engineers Without Borders
University of Houston
"We Build A Better World"
The University of Houston’s Engineers Without Borders chapter is a project focused 501(c)(3) organization. These projects assist foreign communities by providing them with a basic human necessity. Projects must fulfill a need, be plausible, and operate independently of the chapter.
Improving the lives of the 5 billion people whose main concern is to stay alive by the end of each day on our planet is no longer an option for engineers; it is an obligation.
