The WOT is an association that works on simple technical solutions for developing countries. We have a workshop where we use our knowledge gained from studying at the UT to design, make and improve technology that will make a difference in countries where basic needs like clean drinking water and access to electricity are not a given. You can learn a lot of practical skills such as welding, metal- and woodworking, soldering and operating a lathe and a milling machine. These are all assets that can help you become a better engineer as well! Furthermore, we organise events like a weekly meeting, scrapheap challenge, survival weekend and the famous T-week where we try to find and extend the boundaries of our skills in useful and fun projects. Often ended with a drink around the campfire. Interested? E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
