Professionals in EWB-USA University of Arizona Chapter
A little about ourselves
Although EWB-USA University of Arizona Chapter is a student run club, we rely on the help of many professional mentors with expertise in a multitude of areas. Our professional mentors have included hydrologists and geologists, engineers of all disciplines, anthropologists, international development specialists, and other experts.
As a professional, you can be involved as much or little as you desire, from occasional consulting or questions, to traveling internationally with us during assessment or implementation trips. Professional members are usually the most important member of each project team. You'll be able to provide unique experience and direction in our project. Being a professional member is a fantastic way to see firsthand your impact on the world and yon the next generation of engineers.
EWB-USA students and professional mentors participate in a variety of activities, from local volunteering to overseas projects. We work year-round on a primary chapter project, and have regular weekend volunteering with partners such as Habitat for Humanity. Our ultimate goal is to provide professionals and community members an opportunity to exercise their minds while helping people in need
Do I have to be technically minded?
Absolutely not! We welcome professionals from any field. Developing sustainable and successful projects requires many skills not exclusive to the technical professions. Writing grant proposals, creating and analyzing community health surveys, researching local cultures, designing informational media, and organizing fundraisers are just some of the many tasks EWB-USA University of Arizona members take on.
