Put your Engineering Skills to Work in the Developing World

Nicaragua–Tanzania–Rwanda

Saving Equipment =Saving Lives

A Different kind of Summer: The EWH Summer institute is a two month program where engineers live in a developing country with a local family, learn hands-on skills and a new language, and use those newly acquired technical skills to improve health care in the community. We are currently offering  programs in Nicaragua, Tanzania, and Rwanda.Click here for an overview of this program:

Top University-Designed Engineering Courses:

The first month is spent learning the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully work in a hospital in the developing world. The text book and laboratory excercises were developed by Duke University and Texas A&M University, and are taught by instructors with decades of experience working on equipment in the developing world. You can even receive course credit towards your degree: Email sl@ewh.org for more details.
