Make a Difference in the World AND in your Career

Make a Difference in the World AND in your Career

 

When Mike Klassen graduated from engineering school, he wanted to make a difference so he volunteered with Engineers Without Borders. That gig led to paid jobs with EWB where he spent three years first in Ghana, then Uganda and the UK, as a consultant, team leader and portfolio manager. He now works within Institute for Leadership Education in Engineering, iLead, on curriculum development and engineering leadership for wider social impact.  Mike has a Graduate Diploma in Social Innovation from the University of Waterloo (2014) and a BASc in Engineering Science (2010) from the University of Toronto. See what EWB Junior Fellows say about their experiences!
