Parent Organization: Engineering

Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW) at Purdue University is committed to forging innovative, lasting solutions to local and global sustainability challenges. Our organization’s objectives are to stimulate and foster the growth of a more diverse and networked community of engineers, bring together and support students, faculty, and professionals of various disciplines to create lasting solutions with immediate impacts, and infuse sustainability-oriented design into the practice and studies of every engineer through projects, courses, and outreach. We welcome students and faculty from all disciplines to join us, and we encourage anyone with new project ideas to join our growing organization.

ESW- Purdue is currently working on four sustainable projects: a solar-powered kiosk to bring solar awareness to campus and to serve drinks made from solar-powered blenders, an energy-producing bicycle to power small electronic devices and demonstrate how innovative solutions can be implemented using common tools, an automated power switch cell phone app that can turn on/off household lights and electronics, and a reusable bag share program in partnership with the Environmental Science Club.   

As a Student Sustainability Council affiliated organization, we are dedicated to supporting the sustainability community at Purdue and the greater Lafayette community as a whole. ESW-Purdue partners with Purdue Energy Forum to screen monthly sustainability-focused films for the Purdue and Lafayette community coupled with virtual or live discussion boards. Every year our members also support the community by volunteering through programs such as Purdue Winterization and the Wabash River Sampling Blitz.
