Engineers Without Borders, Southern Illinois Carbondale Chapter

Hello and welcome to the Engineers Without Borders USA website for the Southern Illinois University Chapter website. We're a registered student organization here at SIU. Officially, we're a national non-governmental organization to bridge the gab between those who are looking to help and those who need help. Here you will find information on our RSO, events that we will be hosting, our projects, and how to contact us.

Fall 2014 Meetings

As of right now we will be meeting Thursdays at 4:00 pm in the Deans Conference Room Engineering Building Wing E. Anyone is more than welcome to join! We are not exclusive to just engineers and can use students of all majors! Engineers Without Borders is one of the most active RSOs on campus and provides students with an incredible learning opportunity as well as a way to apply their classwork. This is a very unique and amazing program and everyone should be involved!
