What’s the conference about?
The Conference will be hosted at ASU, with more than 150 students and engineering professionals expected to attend, more than 30 chapters from across seven mountain region states. The EWB-USA national and regional leadership will be present. The Conference will represent projects in more than 15 countries internationally.
Attendees will receive hands-on, mission-centered training and they will be able to network with fellow EWB members and local engineering firms and share their best practices.
The Mountain Region is hosting EWB-USA’s Intensive Workshops which will provide members with the opportunity to gain knowledge on topics chosen by the region in an interactive and dynamic learning experience. These workshops have been designed to provide members with a learning experience usually found at expensive seminars and will be hosted by leaders in the field.
