Technical Committee

The EWB Technical Committee

The Technical Committee provides technical support to assignments and projects in Engineers Without Borders Norway.

All positions are voluntary and you must be a member of EWB to be part of the Technical Committee. The Technical Committee reports to the Managing Director and consists of the Technical Committee Leader, the Technical Group Leaders for each of the seven focus areas and group members of the respective groups.

Technical Group Leaders and group members provide technical support to assignments and projects as needed.

The workload of each Technical Group will depend on both the number and complexity of assignments undertaken by EWB and is roughly estimated to 2 hours per week. The Technical Groups support the Administration and volunteer engineers before, during, and after assignments.

Typical work tasks for the Technical Groups are:

  • Planning and analysis of needs before assignments

  • Review the competence requirements before posting the advertisement for an assignment

  • Evaluate the technical competence of candidates applying for assignments

  • Represent a professional network available for the volunteer engineers

  • Quality assurance of technical reports

Participation in a Technical Group is not a prerequisite for being able to apply for assignments or contribute to EWB work.
