Please join us for our Open House and Co-op Presentation Evening on Thursday, January 31st, 2013.

All are cordially invited to our annual open house event, where you can learn more about the education, training, and industry assistance programs that go on in our building. Starting with a complimentary lunch at 12.30, there will be some short presentations between 1pm and 3pm, followed by equipment and software demonstrations in our machine lab.

This year’s afternoon presentations will highlight research and development at UBC and how it benefits the wood products industry, as well as showcasing the training and product development programs available to companies in the sector. In the evening final year co-op students in the Wood Products Processing program will talk about the projects they completed during their recent co-op work terms. There will be ample opportunity in the afternoon and evening to network with manufacturers, suppliers, students, staff and faculty.

There is no charge for these events, but we ask that you please RSVP to  cawp@cawp.ubc.ca, specifying whether you will be attending in the afternoon, evening, or both.
