Department Tours

PR2 - CARISThe Department of Mechanical Engineering offers public tours throughout the year. With many of our facilities not open to the public due to COVID-19, we’re taking the tour online! Join us for a student-led Zoom session showcasing our facilities, providing an overview of our various student design teams, and introducing some of the labs and research done in Mechanical Engineering. At the end of the tour we will be joined by an advisor from our Student Services team to answer any questions you may have about the department and our programs.

The next tour will be: in the spring term
Registration: TBD

Unfortunately we are unable to arrange in-person private tours for groups at this time. If you would like to arrange a Zoom session for a large group (e.g. a high school class), please contact Amelia Pitt-Brooke at communications@mech.ubc.ca. We apologize that we are not able to host private tours for individuals.

Self-Guided Virtual Tour

Outreach

In addition to tours, the Department of Mechanical Engineering conducts outreach to promote STEM and Mechanical Engineering as a career choice. We are able to host workshops for all age groups. In the past our outreach groups have built and tested wind turbines, boats, cars, and other devices. We have worked with Shad Valley, CEDAR, and other groups.

If you would like to discuss hosting an outreach event for your group, please contact Amelia Pitt-Brooke at communications@mech.ubc.ca.
