Few people can claim, as Colin Harris can, to have been part of a team that contributed, in the 1990s, to the evolution of the Internet. But given the complexity of his company’s innovation, many of us may need Google to understand it. While any online search will attest to the importance of PMC-Sierra’s technological

We recognize that the massive, complex problems our world faces won’t be solved by a few more engineers, architects, or planners working on their own.
We’re at a turning point where we must work collaboratively or submit to a status quo of waning impact and relevancy. But if it doesn’t happen now, it will happen too late.
Help make Applied One a reality and invest in this bold, optimistic future.
New Ground Rules
Learning in Silos? No Longer Compulsory
At universities worldwide, future professionals walk parallel but separate paths while addressing problems that can only be solved by working together, combining our strengths, methods and efforts for maximum impact.
Career Prep Without the Crystal Ball
We have a plan to help our future leaders prepare themselves for the unpredictable—not just today’s evolving data-driven, digitally collaborative workplace, but also whatever unexpected shape the future may take.
Don’t Just Think Fast. Act Fast
We’re creating the conditions for the accelerated testing and real-world application of our health, tech and equity solutions while there’s still time.
This is Applied One
Applied One will be far more than a building—it will be a dynamic, inclusive, living laboratory designed on the premise that today’s challenges are too massive, too complex, too interconnected for a single discipline. Rather than recreating the same old walls between our applied professions, Applied One will put concerns like the climate, health and social inequity first, enabling engineers, planners and architects to model solutions quickly, at a scale that promises lasting change.
Campaign Stories Rewriting the Future
Four Life Sciences Tech Entrepreneurs Give Back to the Influential UBC Engineering Physics Project Lab. Name a bigger recent Vancouver tech success than Carl Hansen. A self-made billionaire in 2020, the co-founder and CEO of AbCellera Biologics found a way to combine genetics, data science and machine learning to develop antibody-based medical treatments. Yet, despite
In the quest to build smart skin that mimics the sensing capabilities of natural skin, ionic skins have shown significant advantages. They’re made of flexible, biocompatible hydrogels that use ions to carry an electrical charge. In contrast to smart skins made of plastics and metals, the hydrogels have the softness of natural skin. This offers
