August Department Lab Tour

The Mechanical Engineering Department annually hosts guided lab tours for high school students, first year students, incoming MECH students, or anyone interested in mechanical engineering, to show them what the MECH department is all about and to give them an idea of what kind of research mechanical engineers do. Depending on the labs, students will get to see a variety of demos, presentations, cutting-edge technology and cool gadgetry. For those interested, there will be a 30-minute advising session held after the tour where participants can ask questions about the mechanical engineering department, curriculum, programs, enrollment, etc. The tour is also a good chance to ask current students about their perspective as a student in MECH.

We are now accepting RSVPs for our tour on August 20! If you would like to attend, please RSVP by sending an email to by Friday, August 16..

This tour will feature:

Biomechanics and Rehabilitation Engineering Lab (BioREL)New methods to increase occupant safety through increased vehicle crashworthiness and proper user operation and the development of the UBC powered upper limb orthosis for people with loss of upper limb motor function. Fuel Cell and Hydrogen LaboratoryThe Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Laboratory’s research focuses on energy systems, fuel cell technology and hydrogen infrastructures. They also work on refueling systems for fuel cell vehicles in collaboration with the Institute for Fuel Cell Innovation.
