Engineering Physics is a fully accredited engineering program under the jurisdiction of the Faculty of Applied Science and administered by the Department of Physics and Astronomy. All Engineering Physics students in their 4th and 5th year complete open-ended projects for faculty, industry, or as self-sponsored projects based on student ideas. Students are given access to prototyping facilities, technical resources, and development support throughout the department and across campus to complete these projects.

Here is just a quick sample of recently added Engineering Physics Projects to peruse:

DELTA – A feast was held today to celebrate the signing of a second Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement (AEEA) for Delta, with partners committing to support Aboriginal student success and bring a greater awareness of Aboriginal culture and history to all students.

Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreements are a commitment by school districts, local Aboriginal communities and the Ministry of Education to work together to support Aboriginal students. Delta’s first agreement was signed in 2005, and the initiative has proven to be successful. Over the past ten years, six-year completion rates have risen for Aboriginal students in the district from 37 to 60 per cent.

With the new AEEA, the commitment to Aboriginal students is being enhanced. During the past year, community members, students, parents and educators came together to develop this second AEEA for Delta. The new AEEA is based on information learned from the first agreement and answers to the question, “What would success look like for our students?”

A second public forum on child poverty will be held in Vancouver this month to discuss B.C.’s dismal performance on this front.

It’s a continuation of a discussion sparked in September by Seymour teacher Carrie Gelson when she wrote an open letter to the people of Vancouver on behalf of her disadvantaged students.

The forum will be held Jan. 25, 7-9:30 p.m. at Langara College. Panelists include Gelson, Clyde Hertzman of the Human Early Learning Partnership at UBC and Dr. Barbara Fitzgerald, a UBC pediatrician, among others.

Find full details here.

Fitzgerald is behind a movement called Mom-to-Mom, which sees professional women, mainly from the UBC area, helping mothers living in poverty. Read about that here.
