engINdia.org is an online resource for student engineers. On this site you will find numerous projects and challenges that face people in rural India.

engINdia exists to promote appropriate and sustainable engineering solutions in India, more specifically in the area of Pabal, Maharastra in conjuction with Vigyan Ashram (an NGO operating nearby). These challenges are for univeristy students and beyond.

Have a look through the challenges and find something that suits your ability and interests. If you would any more information on a project please contact us so that we can provide you with local contacts and further information. If you have any questions email us at engindia@mit.edu.

  How engINdia started...
 

engINdia is a partnership between 6 students from the University of Cambridge, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB). An expedition was conduced during the summer of 2005 to the area of Pabal, Maharastra, where the engINdia team worked with Vigyan Ashram and the local community to gain an understanding and appreciation of the development issues concerning rural India which could be tackled through engineering.

During the expedition the team surveyed the attitudes of the local community and the rural technology available to the reigon. The team witnessed emerging, successful and unsuccessful development projects whilst conducting it's own research.

The expedition was approved and partly funded by the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) and officially recognised by Cambridge University.
