Energy Aware's successful Kickstarter campaign funds energy saving sensor

Neurio is a sensor made by Energy Aware that tracks the use of power by appliances in the home. The company raised nearly $267,373 through Kickstarter to help bring the sensor to market. This terrific invention originated as Janice Cheam's team project in New Venture Design, a course that brings business students together with engineering students. Now Janice runs the company bringing this idea to market.

Beyer and Mohamed win Microsystem Design Award for 3D bioprinting to enhance drug testing

Today it takes an average of $5 billion and 10-15 years to develop a drug. One of the primary reasons for the high cost and time spent is the poor predictive accuracy of the front end drug discovery process. Conventional drug development and testing methods rely on the use of 2D cell cultures and animal models. 2D cell cultures are grown on flat, hard surfaces that prevent cells from interacting with their environment in a natural way. 3D cultures are grown in a flexible, protein environment that more closely mimics conditions within the body.

APSC Music Night Video

Watch the performances from this year's Music Night. It has been a tradition at ECE to have a music night each year so that students and faculty members can get some time off from research and enjoy their colleagues' music performances. In 2013 all of APSC was invited to participate. The goal of the event each year is to enjoy each other’s music and experience  different genres of music and of course music of different nations.  This event was organized by ECE and BMEGA.

New technology can prevent cellular overload, dropped calls

New research finds a way to opportunistically use television and radio channels to transmit cellular signals when systems are pushed beyond capacity. When a natural disaster strikes and too many people take to their mobile phones at once, cellular networks easily overload. But a University of British Columbia graduate student has developed a solution to ensure that calls don’t get dropped and texts make it to their destination.
