What is the WOT?

The WOT is a student organization with a passion for technology and development. We test and design extremely affordable technologies for use in developing countries.

A water pump for €20 and €10 for an irrigation system? We develop it. Join us!

Looking for an internship for the minor Crossing Borders, your final thesis or just to gain experience in a developing country? Contact us!
