About the Project Fair

The Engineering Physics Project Fair provides a forum for the interchange of ideas and for the reinforcement of technological networks between students and faculty at UBC, local industry, and government support agencies.  The Project Fair brings together participants to review current developments as presented by our invited speakers, as well as being a showcase for the 120 senior Engineering Physics students and the projects undertaken in the Project Laboratory during the past year in an interactive poster session and award-winning student presentations.

Please consider attending and meeting our senior class – this is an opportunity to meet our students in person and to review their project work firsthand.
