SDU has become a member of Engineers Without Borders - which opportunities does it give you?
SDU has become a company member of Engineers Without Borders (IUG) and therefore as an employee at SDU, you can become a member of Engineers Without Borders, for free. You will have the opportunity to make a difference in an NGO that works for some of the world's poorest people.
Despite the name, you do not have to be an engineer to be a member or to volunteer in Engineers Without Borders, as they need a wide range of knowledge from various disciplines in their work.
Whilst being able to make a difference, as a member, you also get:
- Access to sparring opportunities in professional networks
- Opportunity to join a project team in one of the development projects
- Invitations to events and courses
It is entirely up to you whether you want to become an active member of Engineers Without Borders or whether you just want to show that you support IUG's work by being a member.
