Engineers Without Borders (Southampton)

External Engagement

EWB-UK is an engineering focused charity that works with students and young professionals, providing them with the contacts and experience to make a difference in their local communities and the wider world.


Here at Southampton:

2015/16 marked our first academic year as a society here at Southampton. It went absolutely great, and finished with us being honored with the Best Newcomer Society of the Year award! We are looking forward to another exciting year and to all the fantastic stuff we have planned for 2016/17!

Come find us at the bunfight in the External Engagement Zone, and ask us any questions you would like! We have some really cool projects coming up, and tons of stuff to do!

The national branch:

Student branches typically work with local businesses, other charities and schools as part of outreach and fundraising programs. In addition to this, the central organisation runs overseas placements in the developing world.

Our approach follows several key principles:

Holistic Engineering - we work with an interdisciplinary approach that takes into consideration the local knowledge, economy, culture and environment.

Active Partnerships - we build long term relationships and work in collaboration with communities and local organisations.

People Participation - we believe in demand-led development and participatory change.

Small Footprint - we want to adopt a sustainable use of natural resources and minimise any impact to the local environment, biodiversity or global climate.

Appropriate Technology - we adapt existing low-risk technology and apply modern engineering methods.

Futsal Club

Indoor Team Sports

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA. The name comes from the Portuguese Futebol de salo, which can be translated as "indoor soccer".The Laws of the game are set by FIFA & UEFA associations. Unlimited substitutions are permitted. Unlike some other forms of 5-aside football, the games are played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals and a size 4 ball with a reduced bounce.It is played between touchlines (walls or boards are not used) and all players are free to enter the penalty area and play the ball over head-height. Games are 20 minutes per half, played to a stopping clock (similar to basketball) with time-outs permitted.The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, quick thinking, creativity and technique, as well as ball control and passing in small spaces and under pressure. Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development; players of the calibre of Pele, Zico, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, Xavi, Fabregas amongst many others have played Futsal to develop their skills.Southampton University Futsal Club will participate and compete, for the first time since its establishment, in BUCS 2014/2015 Western 1A League and Trophy. The club will also organise weekly friendly matches / Intra-tournaments for its regular members.If you interested in playing Futsal at any level please get in touch with us and join the club in order to enjoy this wonderful sport and have fun creatively during your studies at the University of Southampton.
