Some of ECE's research faculty recently visited the Silicon Valley to share their work with members of industry. It was great that so many UBC Alumni could attend. From here you can find all of the presentation materials for the talks that evening.
We would like to continue to strengthen our relationships with alumni and members of industry. There are a number of ways for you to become directly involved with our programs and our students. We encourage you to share your knowledge and experience with our students, and to collaborate with our innovative research faculty. Some of ways to connect with UBC are outlined below. To find out more about any of ECE's research programs please contactivanov [at] ece [dot] ubc [dot] ca (subject: Silicon%20Valley%20Research%20Day) ( Dr. André Ivanov.) You can connect with other UBC alumni in your regional network and keep apprised of local activities by joining our Silicon Valley alumni branch. Please contact sarah [dot] barclay [at] ubc [dot] ca (subject: UBC%20Silicon%20Valley%20Alumni%20Branch) (Ms Sarah Barclay) to be added to the network.

There are a number of benefits to engaging with UBC. The University has a world-wide reputation for excellence in research. Significant federal research grants and infrastructure funding attract top graduate students to state-of-the-art laboratories. Industry partners can benefit from direct access to the resulting top quality research at a low cost. Institutional overhead at UBC is extremely competitive, at only 25%.
Engagement opportunities provide direct exposure to our students, enhancing the profiles of industry partners as supporters of student education and research, and preferred potential employers. UBC can help you to fill your HR needs with top-level engineering graduates.
Below are some of the many ways you can develop relationships with UBC's education and research programs.
ECE’s relationships with external partners continue to flourish. An evolving approach to IP also encourages more collaborative research resulting in patents, inventions, commercialization and significant value for industry and society. To connect with the department, please contact ivanov [at] ece [dot] ubc [dot] ca (subject: Research%20Partnerships) (Dr. André Ivanov).
Industry Affiliates Program
Become closely involved with ECE through membership in our new affiliates program. The program builds meaningful, long-term relationships between companies and ECE, providing industry with direct access to our top graduates and researchers. For more information, please contact please contact ivanov [at] ece [dot] ubc [dot] ca (subject: Industry%20Affiliates%20Program) (Dr. André Ivanov).
Capstone Design Projects
Connect with and challenge a team of our final year undergraduates through a Capstone Design Project. Industry can initiate projects by submitting technical issues for our students to solve — and can benefit from their results, and from effectively “pre- screening” potential employees. We have more details about the program and examples of our student work on our Capstone pages.
Hosting Student Groups
Engage directly with a group of our talented and ambitious students by hosting a tour at your facility and giving them a first-hand taste of the realities of a career at your company. For more information, please contact Ms darya [dot] sawycky [at] ubc [dot] ca (subject: Hosting%20Student%20Groups) (Ms Darya Sawycky).
Co-op and Internships
Co-op work terms and internships provide valuable real world learning experiences for our undergraduate and graduate students. Students are available year-round for placements of various lengths of time. Our Faculty can help you find the ideal student to meet your needs. For more information, please contact the Engineering Co-op Office.
Student Recruitment Events
Attend UBC and Engineering industry nights and career fairs, where you can connect with senior undergraduate and graduate students and present your company as an ideal choice for employment. Find out more from UBC Engineering Events.
Connect with current undergraduate and graduate students and contribute to their development by becoming a mentor with one of our UBC Mentoring Programs. For information, please contact sarah [dot] barclay [at] ubc [dot] ca (subject: Student%20Mentorship) (Ms Sarah Barclay).
Directly impact our students by contributing to enrichment initiatives, such as: student awards, competition teams and clubs, field trips and conference participation, and customized opportunities to engage with industry. For more information, please contact darya [dot] sawycky [at] ubc [dot] ca (subject: Student%20Enrichment) (Ms Darya Sawycky).
