Engineers Without Borders-USA was founded at CU and offers engineering students the opportunity to partner with communities in developing countries on projects that improve quality of life. Involvement with EWB-USA is an exceptional opportunity to engage globally, and in some instances, to travel abroad. 

CU hosts a student-led chapter of Bridges to Prosperity (CU B2P). This group works with isolated, global communities to design and build pedestrian footbridges that increase access to key resources and neighboring communities. CU B2P offers an exceptional opportunity to engage globally while applying engineering knowledge to solving real problems. In some instances students travel abroad to assist with projects.
