The Tucuruí chapter was born from an idea of the current president: Abner Cipriano. He researched about the Engenheiros sem Fronteiras, invited Professor Grazielle Tigre and contacted the founding members. With the boards established, the foundation project was sent to ESF Brazil. The theme? Project of Technical Assistance in Habitation of Social Interest, based on Federal Law 11.888/2008. The chapter had the support of several partners, highlighting the Universidade Federal do Pará (UFPA), faculty of all founding members. The official founding date of the chapter was October 29, 2018. The first selection process was organized in the first semester of 2019. The first immersion of the chapter took place on September 1, 2019, right after its official establishment.
