The EWB Challenge Series is EWB Australia’s suite of project-based learning opportunities, ready to be integrated into curriculum at any university year level.

Each year, EWB works alongside our community partners to develop comprehensive real-world project briefs and the supporting learning content which enables students to dive deeply into a context from their classroom.

Our academic partners utilise this material to bring to life the vital socio-technical skills and mindsets required to develop viable designs or research-based solutions in complex, real-world situations. EWB and our partners provide real-time stakeholder engagement opportunities across each semester, alongside end-of-year celebratory project showcases.

Visit each ‘Challenge’ page to learn more about the student experience, links to community work, and key activities unique to each program.

Equipping academics with knowledge and resources to bring the real-world into the classroom

The Challenge Series develops graduates who are future-fit; equipped with professional skills and best-practice approaches required to tackle complex global issues.

Engineers Without Borders – the global movement

Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is a global movement made up of many independent EWB organisations around the globe. Across countries, the key objective is to remove barriers to engineering to alleviate poverty in countries across the world. Each organisation is independent but collaboration is key to the impact of the EWB movement and that is why EWB Australia and EWB New Zealand have partnered to deliver the EWB Challenge.
