Join Engineers Without Border Australia (EWB) to create change through humanitarian design, engineering and international development initiatives.

You will travel to India for two weeks, meeting with developing communities to learn about community development, appropriate technology and humanitarian engineering.

The India Design Summit provides an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the role engineering and technology play in creating positive change within communities.

Over the course of the Summit you will undertake a team design project in conjunction with our Indian community partners. The project aims to challenge you to apply the skills and knowledge you have learnt at university in an Indian community context, developing your humanitarian engineering skills.
