Senior – Industrial Systems Engineering with minor in Leadership: Cross Disciplinary Perspectives

Hello guys, gals, and nonbinary pals! I’m a senior in Industrial Systems Engineering here at good ole NC State. I love people and I want to make the world a better place, so EWB was a great fit for me! It’s an incredible organization that wants to empower everyone involved. I wish I had joined EWB the second I stepped foot on campus! I was worried that I might not have the skills needed, but I’m here to spread the word that EWB is open to every skill level and major (yes! Non-engineers too!).

Project Leads

Taylor Robertson –  Sierra Leone Water Systems Lead

Senior – Civil Engineering

Hey all! My name is Taylor Robertson, I’m currently a senior studying Civil Engineering. I have been a part of the Sierra Leone Water Systems team for 2 years now. Joining EWB has been one of the best decisions I ever made in college. I’ve learned so much about how engineering projects work and it’s helped me grow as a person. Volunteering especially in an organization where you can see the personal impact on others makes the work all worth it. I am extremely fortunate to have this opportunity to be a project lead and I look forward to the next year’s challenges and figuring them out with y’all! I hope to share my enthusiasm for EWB and if you have any questions please email.
