Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW)
Founded in 2003, Stanford Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW) aims to address the challenges of global poverty and sustainability by harnessing the energy and creativity of student engineers, members may be from any major in any school. We partner with organizations locally and internationally to approach engineering-based challenges through partnerships that foster cultural, educational, and technical exchange.
Service required to fulfill a Cardinal Commitment: We offer local and international projects that all span much more than three quarters (including summer time). Thus, students in ESW typically work on their favorite project or projects throughout the year (like Repair Cafe) and reach different milestones each quarter. Since it is engineering based, the longer the commitment, the more results students will be able to see (project development). We hope that this is an incentive for students to complete their Cardinal Commitment with us!
