Partnership with academic association Engineers Without Borders e.V.

As a sustaining member and ‘Premium Partner’ of Engineers Without Borders e.V. (EWB) – a non-profit association founded by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) – we share a common mission and enjoy close cooperation. Besides providing financial aid, we set great store by supporting selected projects to which we can contribute our professional expertise in the fields of architecture, IT, and logistics and production planning.

We regularly host workshops where our experts put the students' concepts and plans to the test to help ensure reliable results. This gives them the security of knowing that they are on the right path with their activities. In return, we can be sure of having made an important contribution to the progress of EWB’s socially worthwhile projects.

It’s all in the name: Engineers Without Borders e.V.

Founded in 2004 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the academic association today counts 360 members. These future construction engineers, architects, mechanical engineers, information scientists and industrial engineers have set themselves an important global goal: to improve the quality of life and the prospects of disadvantaged individuals, who have not had the fortune of being born in a safe and economically sound place. 

To this purpose, the group not only crosses geographical borders, but also uses every opportunity of exchange and international cooperation across various disciplines. In this way the students create solutions for long-term and sustainable developments – always with the objective of helping people to fend for themselves with regard to water supply and disposal, food supply, accommodation, energy supply, mobility, communication, employment and income. We take pride in supporting them in their mission on a worldwide basis.
