From Playing Games to Creating Apps

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.

Engineer and Entrepreneur Extraordinaire

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.
