Mechanical Engineering at UBC is home to a successful and recognized research department, with numerous connections to international industry. There are over 200 graduate students and about 30 undergraduates working in research labs here, and most of our faculty members hold multiple NSERC, CIHR, and CFI grants and contracts. Research in the department is funded by over $3.5 million a year in funding from industry, which is raised by about 28 of our faculty members alone.

The Pro-Neck-Tor™ helmet technology under development at Injury Biomechanics Laboratory of The University of British Columbia is being designed to provide the additional level of protection that no state-of-the-art helmet so far has been able to offer – protection for the head and neck during head-first impacts.

Discover "The Power of Paper" with Ata Sina, MECH master's student and Pulp & Paper Centre researcher. Hear Sina talk about how "Rock, Paper, Scissors" led him to become an "origami engineer."

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Origami is great, but what if we could use it as a starting point to create a new, sustainable, structural.
