The research and training offered by CITech is built on the strength of several institutes and labs at UBC.

Materials and Manufacturing Research Institute

Materials and Manufacturing Research Institute (MMRI) is a multidisciplinary, interdepartmental research hub at the University of British Columbia (UBC) fostering collaboration between local, national and international R&D sectors.


Composites Research Network – Okanagan Laboratory

CRN – Okanagan is a vibrant, diverse and highly active research laboratory, serving local, national and global industries in pursuit of the advancement of composite materials and processes. Research performed has led to many successful graduate research projects and thesis defenses by graduate students, as well as practical solutions to company problems, in the form of design or troubleshooting, where applicable.


Khalad Hasan Lab

The research in Khalad Hasan Lab is centered around human-computer interaction (HCI), with a focus on interactions with mobile and wearable devices. More specifically, the lab explores user needs and limitations while interacting with mobile and wearable devices, designing new interaction techniques to facilitate the needs and help users to overcome the limitations.


Intelligent Sensing, Diagnostics and Prognostics Research Lab

The Intelligent Sensing, Diagnostics, and Prognostics Research Lab focuses on the methodologies to “acquire” and “process” information. To acquire information, we develop new sensing measurement technologies as well as industry IoT ecosystems for varied applications. To process information, we conduct the research on signal/image processing, data analysis, and data/information fusion to derive the insights to support decision making.


Intelligent Construction Lab

UBC Intelligent Construction Lab focuses on advancing automation and intelligence in the life-cycle of design, construction and maintenance of civil infrastructures.


Mobility Assistive Technology Evidence for Rehabilitation Science

MATERS is centered around interventions to improve mobility, social participation and ultimately quality of life. Many of these interventions emphasize increasing mobility self-efficacy which mediates social participation.
