2020 May – Although campus is quiet, UVic Engineering and Computer Science students, faculty and staff continue to carry out core activities related to education, innovation and research in inventive and effective ways, writes Acting Dean Peter Wild in his message to newsletter readers.

The faculty’s Spring 2020 newsletter provides stories on just a few of these activities – such as the engineering lab that has become the hub of a community initiative to help protect frontline workers at Island Health; a computer science student whose co-op at a local tech firm has him working on a pandemic-related software solution; and a mechanical engineering student who has contributed to the national ventilator initiative.

Other articles focus on engineering alumna Kirsten Peck, who received UVic’s Distinguished Alumni Award, the faculty’s newest student team, and an update on the building expansion plans.
