Global Impact One Engineer at a Time: Why we Founded Engineers Without Borders
The co-founders of the world-renowned humanitarian organization Engineers Without Borders, George Roter (BASc 1999) and Parker Mitchell (BASc 1999), will deliver a public lecture titled "Global Impact One Engineer at a Time: Why we Founded Engineers Without Borders" about their journey from their time as engineering students at the University of Waterloo, to the founding of Engineers Without Borders and its global impact, and their careers since and beyond.
George Roter and Parker Mitchell are recipients of the Faculty of Engineering 2009 Team Alumni Achievement Medal in recognition of their work with Engineers Without Borders (EWB) worldwide.
Students, alumni, professors, special guests and the community are invited to hear their entrepreneurial journey and then to ask questions in a Q&A session.
A reception follows the lecture for a chance to network over light refreshments in the brand new event space (2nd floor) of the Engineering 7 building.
