CAWP Open House 2019

The CAWP 2019 Open House and Co-op Presentation Evening will be held on Thursday, January 31st. To join us, please RSVP here: CAWP Open House.

CAWP’s Open House event is an opportunity for interested individuals to  learn more about the education, training, research and industry assistance programs that go on in our building. In the afternoon we have a few short presentations on topics of interest to the wood products industry community. From 3pm visitors can walk around and view practical demonstrations and exhibits in our machine lab areas, as well as talk to some of our machinery, software and educational partners. In the evening, final-year co-op students in the Wood Products Processing program  and other UBC Forestry undergraduate programs describe the projects they completed during their recent co-op work terms. There is ample opportunity in the afternoon and evening to network with manufacturers, suppliers, students, staff and faculty.
