2024 Design & Innovation Day

Welcome to Electrical and Computer Engineering Design and Innovation Day!

We are excited to share the projects our students have worked on over the final year of their undergraduate program! The capstone design project is a major component of the ECE engineering curriculum where students work in teams of four to six to design a product/service of significance and to solve an open-ended problem in electrical and computer engineering.

April 11th, 2:00-5:00pm

Fred Kaiser Building – 2332 Main Mall, UBC Campus – Atrium and Kaiser 2020/2030
