Get Involved with Research

If you want to know more about EWBNZ research, are keen to get involved or have any great ideas for future research projects then we would love to hear from you!  Please email Amanda at


If you are either a final year undergraduate student or postgraduate student make sure to look out for EWBNZ affiliated research projects at your university! Alternatively, if your current research project aligns with the EWBNZ ethos and values, then get in touch as you may be able to affiliate your research with us! The benefits of undertaking a research project affiliated with EWB include access to professional mentoring and the technical expertise of EWBNZ members and publicity through our website and other events.


EWBNZ is seeking communities within New Zealand or the South Pacific with self-identified needs requiring sustainable engineering solutions. If you know of a community we could help through our research program please let us know. See above for examples of the work we do!

Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO's)

EWBNZ’s partnerships with non-governmental organisations are key to identifying issues within communities which can be formed into research projects. Research students then investigate and provide economically and environmentally appropriate solutions and recommendations to the NGO partner.


The EWBNZ research team is interested in partnering with academics who are passionate about research areas related to humanitarian engineering. If you have any great ideas for research projects which may be able to benefit developing communities we would love to hear from you!


EWBNZ really values the input and guidance professional members can offer to students carrying out research projects with EWB. If you are interested in investing a small amount of your time to mentor our student engineers then please get in touch.
