Tony Tang is a third-year Electrical Engineering undergraduate student at UBC. In this video, submitted as part of the NSERC Video Competition, he spotlights current departmental research on image guidance.
The Mitacs Globalink program brings in top undergraduate students from around the world to UBC and Canada. This year, it brought 33 students to UBC from India, China, Brazil and Mexico. The hope is that they will choose to pursue graduate studies here after their undergraduate degree is complete.
EECE 375/474: Computer-Based Instrumental Design Laboratory focuses on designing complex engineering projects within a team environment. In addition to implementing advanced technical principles into projects, students also learned about project management and team communication. Instructed by Dr Paul Lusina, this year's theme is on Robotic Search and Rescue. Students had to build an autonomous vehicle which can carry out a simulated search and rescue operation. Tasks included calculating an optimal path, collecting the victim and producing a mission report at the end.
Al-Shahna Jamal is a third year electrical and computer engineering student at the University of Toronto. Dr. Steven Wilton is supervising her summer research internship. What project are you working on this summer?
Each summer, undergraduate students make significant contributions to research projects at ECE while working as interns. Mireille Ghoussoub is going into her fourth year in Electrical Option of Engineering Physics. She is working closely with Dr. Peyman Servati’s research group, especially Dr. Bobak Gholamkhass and PhD student Saeedeh Ebrahimi Takalloo this summer. What research project are you working on?
It began with a simple wish to make video games. Now five years later, William Gallego has refined his ambitions, accumulated a wealth of leadership experience and graduates from UBC with an Applied Sciences degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. The former President of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Student Society plans to apply his skills to create a website that synthesizes e-mails for students, and to develop apps that will eventually be sold in the Apple App Store.
Along with her degree, when Annelies Tjebbes graduates in May, she’ll have in her hands an award-winning product and an impressive volunteer experience. In her undergraduate years, she co-founded Kaizen Biomedical, and together with her team, they invented MobiChill: a blanket that induces therapeutic hypothermia to cardiac arrest patients and reduces the risk of long-term side effects such as neurological damage. They have already won first place for the product at the 2012 Enterprize Canada National Business Plan and are getting ready to put MobiChill on the market.
