Introduction to EGD

Download Overview

Engineering for Global Development (EGD) is an interdisciplinary practice that aims to improve the quality of life of underserved communities worldwide through the design and delivery of technology-based solutions combined with building of local capacity.

At E4C, we’ve developed a learning framework and courses for those new to the field.
