Irwing K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC or “Barber Centre”), room 182 and foyer

Invited Speaker:   Josh Usher, PEng, Senior Engineer / Founder, MistyWest

Josh has over a decade of experience leading product development teams. He is Fizz grad and also has a masters in clean energy engineering (which was way easier than Fizz). Josh has worked on a large variety of positive impact focused technologies from electric bikes to solar cars and from mosquito traps to polar bear tags. His biggest passion at the moment is finding new ways to motivate his team (and building lego with his kids – because who doesn’t like lego).

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.
