Facilities for Computing and Engineering
The Faculty of Applied Sciences’ academic programs and research require substantial technical support and operating expenses for laboratories and computing infrastructure. Our specialized micro-fabrication facility is unique and offers the only credit course in micro-fabrication in B.C. By investing in facilities, our faculty and students gain essential experience with leading-edge technology.
The Faculty of Applied Sciences' outreach programs inspire elementary through high school students across the Lower Mainland to pursue education and career opportunities in engineering and computer science.
We are passionate about opening minds and doors through community outreach programs like Technovation, a global app-building challenge for girls, which aims to close the gender gap in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
STEM career paths provide stimulating, lucrative opportunities to those who follow them, yet women comprise only 22 per cent of the STEM workforce. Engaging the next generation of young women in STEM, and other under-represented minority groups, is a crucial step on the journey towards a diverse, tech-ready workforce.
