ESW-Stanford was founded in 2003 and since then has organized numerous activities including workshops, international internships, design projects, and conferences. Examples of our past activities can be found throughout the site. ESW-Stanford is also a student-led affiliate of the Haas Center for Public Service. We welcome participants from all backgrounds.
The Stanford Chapter of Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW-Stanford) aims to inspire and enable Stanford students to make a lasting impact in the world through service learning. By designing engineering solutions with our partners, we strive to empower local and international communities to achieve their developmental goals.
ESW-Stanford activities fall roughly into two main categories: International Projects and Local Initiatives.
We help organize projects in countries such as Nepal and South Africa that are available for all Stanford students to apply to. We also strongly believe in engaging with our local community, and sponsor several on-campus projects and events related to sustainable engineering.
ESW-Stanford believes in 3 core values: Empathy, Collaboration, and Technical Excellence. We encourage members of the Stanford community to use strong engineering practices to work together and serve communities around the world.
