While there are many opportunities for medical professionals to serve using their skills on the mission field, we have not found many for technical professionals; though their services are just as valuable and applicable. The Compassioneers Network is our answer to this deficiency. By joining our network, technical professionals are able, on a part time basis, to be involved in engineering projects, of all disciplines, for impoverished communities. We also give technical support to missionaries on the field as they serve their people. Find out more.
Our university student chapters create a unique environment for service and learning at any engineering school. In addition to team building, educational meetings, and social events, members design and implement real appropriate technology projects for actual developing communities around the world.
The hands-on projects reenforce the students' learning in the classroom, and implementation trips expose them to other cultures and many times a new level of poverty. Few students go through this experience unchanged. Seeing the impact that even a small project can have on someone's quality of life often changes a student's perspective and future goals. The student chapter also offers students a way to meld their God given passions for engineering and missions. We believe students who are active members in an Engineers with a Mission student chapter come out of the experience better engineers and more well rounded, globally minded citizens better prepared to serve the world.

If you are an engineer who is considering working overseas as a missionary or tent maker, please consider using us as your sending agency. We plant engineers in strategic locations where they can engage in ongoing projects. They will be partnered with other missionaries or NGO's and be a base for our short-term teams.
