Job Opening for Medical Engineer Without Borders

On a visit to Timor Leste, these lucky students have interactive discussions with the good people from Engineers Without Borders (EWB)

We reflected on how the design of a country’s infrastructure and facilities impact the delivery of health services.

In Timor Leste, there is a huge unmet need in the provision, maintenance and servicing of donated medical equipment and the quantity of broken aid equipment here is so sad and frustrating.

It is a space we would love to get involved in but really needs a champion to spearhead the project. Is that you, a medical engineer or mechatronics jack-of-all-trades?
