The Engineering Physics Project Fair is a poster session of recent projects by our senior Engineering Physics students, presentations by award-winning student groups, as well as a selection of invited speakers focused on each year’s selected theme.

Invited Speaker

Suzanne Gildert, Co-founder and CSO of Kindred Systems


Suzanne is co-founder and CSO of Kindred. She oversees the design and engineering of the company’s human-like robots and is responsible for the development of cognitive architectures that allow these robots to learn about themselves and their environments. Before founding Kindred, Suzanne worked as a physicist at D-Wave, designing and building superconducting quantum processors, and as a researcher in quantum artificial intelligence software applications.

Suzanne likes science outreach, retro tech art, coffee, cats, electronic music and extreme lifelogging. She is a published author of a book of art and poetry. She is passionate about robots and their role as a new form of symbiotic life in our society.

Suzanne received her Ph.D. in experimental physics from the University of Birmingham (UK) in 2008, specializing in quantum device physics, microfabrication techniques, and low-temperature measurements of novel superconducting circuits.

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.
