APPS4KIDS HACKATHON: Creating digital tools to improve children’s health

Medical care for children with chronic conditions, particularly for those with neurodevelopmental conditions, can be very complex. There are significant advantages to incorporating digital tools into the medical care of children and youth. At the Apps4Kids Hackathon, held at UBC, paediatricians, parents, designers and students collaborated for a week to create apps that will improve children’s health.

Registration circa 1915

What courses would you have taken if you were registering 100 years ago? In 1915, UBC's Applied Science course schedules were quite a bit different than they are today. For a quick break from registration, take a look at the 1915 engineering course schedule. You can get a sense of the ways engineering has changed profoundly over the years just from the course descriptions. The drawing, shop and field-work courses are particularly indicative of how much the curriculum has changed.

Sleeves Up Teaching wins Christoph Sielmann a Killam Graduate Assistant Teaching Award

Over the last two years, Christoph Sielmann has been one of the Teaching Assistants supporting ECE's capstones, a set of courses for 4th year undergraduates to work on projects proposed by industry. Teaching the capstone teams can be very challenging. The projects combine many aspects of electrical and computer engineering from analog electronics, FPGA implementations, networking software, or the opto-acoustic effect in biological tissues.

2015 Capstones

  AT the heart of the ECE capstones are real, open-ended, engineering problems brought to us by clients. The best way to get a sense of the scope and diversity of the projects our students have successfully tackled is to see a few examples.
