Help our students succeed! The future of innovation depends on the support of organizations like yours.

UBC Applied Science provides fourth-year students with a unique opportunity to execute an innovation plan. Working on a year-long project, undergraduates in nursing, architecture, community planning and engineering show off their solutions to their peers, professors and industry during Design and Innovation Day.

As a company which understands and thrives on the possibilities of design and innovation, you can certainly appreciate the need for such events. And after a few short formative years, these students could very well be your next best employee.
