The Vitória Chapter, officially founded in 2013, was created in 2012 by students from the UFES (Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo) who sought a more critical and humanized approach to engineering.
Since then, several projects have been carried out in the communities of Greater Vitória, in addition to several other activities to promote the development of the members themselves.
Currently they have students from several colleges and different courses, as well as the help of trained engineers who provide support in their projects.
Captação de Água de Chuva: It consists of installing a rainwater collection system in schools or social projects. The whole system is planned and sized by the team, according to technical data of specific standards and software. Lectures are also given to those assisted regarding the system and conscious use of water. Two cycles of the project have already been carried out in two schools, one in Vitória and the other in Cariacica, and the next cycle is already under planning!

Mirante: The project arose from an invitation to Engenheiros Sem Fronteiras – Vitória Chapter made by Palete Parque, which works with new ways of using urban space, to participate in the planning of a public leisure and contemplation area in a community of Vitória. The idea is to achieve socioeconomic and environmental improvements in the location of the viewpoint.
