On April 11, 2023 the annual UBC Engineering Design and Innovation Day event provided students with the opportunity to present their Capstone projects through interactive exhibits and hands-on demonstrations.

Design and Innovation Day is UBC Engineering's annual showcase for student engineering design projects. Carried out in small groups over the previous academic year, the projects enable students to improve their technical, teamwork and management skills while designing solutions to real-world problems.

Below is a list of the most outstanding projects of the year and winning teams, as selected by their individual units. We are incredibly proud of all the work accomplished by the students and look forward to seeing how their projects create impact.

Have a project idea? Get in touch! Capstone instructors are now seeking community partners. Applications are due mid-August.
