     what is BLUElab?
BLUElab is a student-run organization
promoting engineering students’ sense of
environmental and social responsibility
through volunteer projects and educational
initiatives, both within our community and
overseas.

     what is BLUElab?
BLUElab was founded in 2002 at the University
of Michigan as a local chapter of Engineers
Without Borders-USA (EWB). Now we are our
own organization, and we are affiliated with both
EWB and Engineers For a Sustainable World
(ESW). Our mission statement is very similar to
that of both EWB and ESW but we are an
independent student-led group.

     what is BLUElab?
what is our mission statement?
The goal of BLUElab is to find solutions to
development problems at home and abroad that
are environmentally, culturally and economically
sustainable. We are a student run organization
that works to educate socially responsible
engineering students while partnering with
communities to develop technology that is
appropriate for real world problems.
