Can I Join If I'm Not an Engineer?
Any major is a valuable asset to a project, and club. Between marketing, reports, engineering work, sociology, agriculture, health, water quality, Spanish, and everything else, your unique skill set is of value. If there is anything in particular you are interested in, let the project lead know and they can tailor the project towards you. There is always more than can be done in any area of work.
How often do we meet?
The general club will meet every two weeks. Projects may meet more often, some less. It depends on what phase the project is in.
When are we meeting?
Meeting times for general meetings will typically occur at 6 and last about an hour. But as mentioned before, the times will vary individually from project to project. Please check with project leads, or consult the calendars.
Where are we meeting?
For general meetings, the typical meeting place is in Kemper 1003 conference. Each individual project will have their own time and meeting place, these meetings are much smaller than the general meetings and can happen anywhere. Information will be sent before every general meeting, and each project lead will send out an e-mail before their meetings. More updated information will be on the calendars on this website.
What is the commitment for EWB?
EWB is what you make of it. If you just want to buff up your resume, listen to people talk, and eat pizza, that is totally fine. However, the more you hear about the project, the more likely you will want to put in an extra effort. If you are looking to travel or pick up a position, expect to put in more time.
Can we join more than one EWB Project?
Of course! In fact, it is encouraged. When beginning, it is recommended going to every project meeting once to see what project piques your interest.
