Comprised of Regional Councils, Younger Member Councils, Sections, Branches, Student Chapters and Clubs and International Student Groups, the Society and its volunteers are fully engaged in making this a better world by design.

Engineers for a Sustainable World Stanford will be sending one or two interns to the Indian Himalayas this summer to work with two members of SEEDS, an Indian-based NGO focused on disaster relief and mitigation, to research historic seismic design technologies, analyze existing buildings and disseminate the technology and knowledge to the local people. SEEDS is looking for students with a structural or architectural background. We invite students to get involved.
