For Enrique Calderon, a fourth-year Electrical Engineering (with a Computer Science minor) student, his dream to become a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force has taken him to UBC’s Okanagan campus (which happens to be situated across highway 97 from the Kelowna international Airport).
UBC’s Okanagan campus is hosting a series of webinars on science and systemic racism. The webinars begin on November 26 and are part of an ongoing speaker series on systemic racism organized by the university.
James Ropotar is in his first-year at UBC Okanagan’s School of Engineering. The Schulich Scholar started his journey to become a professional engineer in September 2020 (actually he started last year as a Dual Credit student with School District 23).
Jonathan Verrett and Jannik Eikenaar, assistant professors of teaching in the UBC Faculty of Applied Science, have been named the augural recipients of the Marshall Bauder Chairs in Experiential Learning and Leadership.
