HCEWB is affiliated with Engineers Without Borders - USA, a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities around the world in order to improve their quality of life. As a result of the expanding School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, HCEWB seeks to promote a global consciousness among students by working on environmentally sound and economically sustainable engineering projects. The projects usually last 3-5 years and culminate in a trip to the community in which they will be implemented. Members from a variety of concentrations are encouraged to join. HCEWB is dedicated to the EWB mission: "Building A Better World, One Community At A Time."
