At the 2015 CSCE Annual Conference, UBC Okanagan’s CSCE Student Chapter was presented with the President’s Award for Most Improved Chapter.

Each Chapter is required to submit a year-end report in March. This report details membership activities and summarizes yearly events.

The UBC Okanagan Chapter is proud of its growth — from humble beginnings last year, membership now totals more than 33. Social media accounts are active, and the Chapter hosted six software training sessions (Microsoft Office Bootcamp, and AutoCAD). In addition, the Chapter brought six different guest speakers to campus, including Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran (pictured below), and organized a site tour of UBC’s Geothermal Exchange and district heating system.

“The growth of the School of Engineering is reflected in the growth of our Chapter,” saysTim Abbott, Chapter member and School of Engineering PhD student.

All levels of applied science students are welcome to join the UBC Okanagan CSCE Student Chapter. For more information, and to learn about upcoming events, connect with them on Facebook.
