Welcome to the Oxford branch of
Engineers Without Borders (EWBOx)!

Engineers Without Borders Oxford is part of an international development organisation that removes barriers to development through engineering and is part of a global movement to engineer a better future.

We aim to provide opportunities for members of the Oxford community to partake in research projects that tackle poverty using engineering. These projects span many different areas of engineering and we are always looking for new projects to run within the society.

Most importantly, you do not need to be an engineering student to be a part of EWBOx!

MACHINE LEARNING

FOR COVID-19 MEDICAL IMAGE ANALYSIS

This project aims to investigate Machine Learning (ML) methods for processing biomedical image data, with a particular focus on identifying COVID19-related symptoms to improve early diagnosis. We will be working with PhD students from the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the Big Data Institute

LANDMINE DETECTION USING ROBOTICS

Design, build, and test a prototype landmine detection robot that can navigate the potentially rough terrain of a minefield. With over 100 million landmines still buried and armed in places all over the planet today, the problem of landmine contamination is very real, current, and severe.

BIOENGINEERING

PROJECT FOR BLADDER INCONTINENCE 

Design and produce an ultrasound-based solution to monitor bladder fullness along with a sleep app to monitor sleeping patterns to alert users of urinary incontinence, a problem that affects millions of people around the world. 

YOUTH OUTREACH PROJECT

Our programme inspires the future generation of engineers through interactive, hands-on workshops where they learn how to design solutions for issues such as clean water and electricity shortages. We offer STEM ambassador training to those passionate about sharing the importance of engineering to students.
