UVic GS 505 student research helps make the lives of BC children better

GS 505 is not your typical course where student research projects end their journey on a professor’s desk. The BC Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) staff propose priority research topics from their service areas, and UVic School of Child and Youth Care professor Sibylle Artz and course coordinator PhD student and GS 505 alumna Thais Amorim match students with research projects that will strengthen their skills.

Building energy efficiency

Governments and industry are looking to university researchers for the tools to help them explore every aspect of building design through a lens of energy efficiency. UVic civil engineering professor Ralph Evins is helping lead this important work with a multi-disciplinary research project using machine learning to help design energy-efficient buildings that don’t yet exist. This research is funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, the CANARIE Research Software Program and consulting engineering firm WSP—one of eight companies and 10 other entities helping review and steer the research.

Powerful stories of research impact

Two University of Victoria researchers are named top 25 “Storytellers” by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) 2020 Storytellers annual competition which celebrates the best in research communication by post-secondary students. Both UVic winning submissions showcase community-engaged research and creative initiatives.
