UBCO Industrial Scale Engineering Laboratory

Institution:
UBC
Campus/City:
Okanagan

At UBC Okanagan, existing high head laboratory space is at capacity and the UBC Okanagan School of Engineering is unable to expand.  A 604 GSM expansion of industrial scale laboratory space will enable the UBC Okanagan School of Engineering to grow teaching, research, and development of advanced technologies, such as seismic enhancement tools for large-scale infrastructure.

Project Objectives

Industrial Scale Engineering Laboratory expansion is proposed to grow teaching, research and development of advanced technologies, such as seismic enhancement tools for large-scale infrastructure. Once complete, and, over the medium and long term, the Industrial Scale Engineering Laboratory will enable UBC Okanagan to grow efforts to drive economic development and diversification in the BC Interior through the training of engineers and innovative research partnerships with industry, clearly supporting the Provincial Government’s strategy of expansion for technological innovation.
