2018-2019 School Year

After welcoming all our new members at our first GBM, we are very excited for the potential of Engineers Without Borders this school year. With our international project team planning to take an evaluation trip to Nicaragua in the winter, and our local project team starting a few new projects with different Pittsburgh organizations, there is a lot to be done. By the end of the year, we hope to make a major impact on our campus and partner communities, as well as grow as students by using what we learn in our classes to engineer a better world.

Wigle Whiskey 2018

On February 12, we held our annual fundraiser at Wigle Whiskey.  It was a night of delicious food, drinks, live music, and fun raffles. Thank you to our two music performances, everyone who cooked, and the bartenders and hosts at Wigle for ensuring that everything ran smoothly. And last but not least, a huge thank you to everyone who came out to support us at this event- we couldn’t complete our projects without you!
