Engineers for a Sustainable World

Design ⋅ Educate ⋅ Build


About Us

We are a close-knit UC Berkeley organization made up of passionate subteams who believe that you do not have to be an engineer in order to engineer change. We welcome students and professionals of all backgrounds to join us in building a more sustainable world through designing and implementing hands-on sustainability projects, educating students and practicing engineers on sustainability best practices, and uniting people who are passionate about sustainability to create a global network.


Active Projects

Bioswale & Rainwater Harvesting

By creating a rainwater harvesting system along with a bioswale at the Hearst Field Annex Buildings for irrigation and filtration, we divert pollutants from Strawberry Creek, mitigate drought, localize water sources, and waste less money and energy overall.

3D Printed Waste Recycling

 Despite being technology of the future, the 100+ 3D printers on campus create piles of plastic trash. Through a series of recycling projects in collaboration with SERC, Green Labs, Richmond High School, and many more, we can convert vetoed prototypes and tangled spools into new filament and materials research – providing educational opportunities alongside a zero-waste future.
