Research Day, on January 26-27, 2017, is a graduate student-driven initiative hosted by the Chemical and Biological Engineering department in the Faculty of Applied Science of the University of British Columbia to strengthen relations with industry at the graduate level, to facilitate collaborations and to connect communities. The theme of the event is “Nano is the new big”. This full day event will showcase the quality of research work by engineering students in the form of three-minute-thesis competition and poster session. It will also feature two keynote presentations, a mock interview workshop, student design competition and lots of networking opportunities. This event is expected to attract a minimum of 100-150 students, researchers and faculty members from UBC Engineering departments as well as industry and community representatives. Participants will have the chance to present their work, explore collaboration opportunities, expand their professional networks and prepare for future jobs.
