Project Lab 40th Anniversary Celebration

ENPH Project Lab

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Engineering Physics Project Lab! This lab was started from the combined vision of Boye Ahlborn and the Engineering Physics class of 1978 to provide students practical engineering design experience and has grown to become the nexus of all engineering design and entrepreneurship within Engineering Physics. Sixty students a year now participate in two capstone design courses in this lab, pursuing advanced engineering and physics projects across a broad variety of applications including particle physics, biomedical devices, quantum computing, artificial intelligence, autonomous drones, and more.

In collaboration with UBC Engineers class of 1978 reunion, we will be hosting a celebration of the Project Lab 40th Anniversary on Saturday, Oct 20th, where we will honor Boye Ahlborn and the class of 1978 for their visionary contributions to making Eng Phys what it is today. We will be announcing new funding and new initiatives, showcasing some recent projects, reminiscing over old projects, and touring the project lab where we can mingle with our current students and discuss their projects. Please join us for this celebration, and join us in honoring those whose vision enabled the development of one of the world’s best undergraduate engineering programs.
