UD Engineering students making a difference abroad

Students from the University of Delaware’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders make a global impact: They have traveled to both Malawi and The Philippines to ensure secure water sources.

“We are hopefully changing their lives, giving them back a lot of time and money they were losing in the process for getting water before, and giving them ownership of their own water source as well.”
