11th April, 2024

Design and Innovation Day is an annual showcase in which UBC Engineering students present their projects through interactive exhibits and hands-on demonstrations. Engineering students undertake a year-long capstone, design or research project that offers innovative solutions to real-world problems. At the end of the course in mid-April, students present their design models to industry partners and potentially a working prototype as a solution to their problem. 

We are happy to announce that students will present these projects - through interactive exhibits and hands-on demonstrations - at our largest showcase of the year!
