ECE Research Open Day

ECE@UBC has a large, diverse and highly successful research community, offering many exciting opportunities for students, researchers, alumni and industry. The Research Open Day provides an occasion to engage with members of the department, connect with local companies and network within the wider community.

Senior researchers from ECE will give short, high-level talks on their recent advances, and graduate students will present their work at posters during the fully-catered lunch. There will be opportunities to discuss research ideas and commercialization during the coffee breaks, with small panel discussions chaired by faculty members and representatives from industry relations (APSC, Mitacs, UILO, entrepreneurship@UBC)

The invitation is open to all – please join us for this full-day event showcasing the unique research within ECE.
