Learning Factory will integrate industrial production with learning and research on advanced composites.
VANCOUVER — Avcorp Industries and the University of British Columbia have agreed to explore the establishment of a Learning Factory for Advanced Composites at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
The Learning Factory will integrate industrial production with learning and research and provide UBC students and faculty with new opportunities for research, knowledge translation, and hands-on experiential learning. The Learning Factory will also provide technical and skills training opportunities for students from partner institutions, such as Okanagan College.
Through the development of a composites research and production facility at the UBC Okanagan Innovation Precinct, as well as an integrated digital simulation facility at UBC’s Vancouver campus, the Learning Factory will provide Avcorp enhanced ability to evaluate and improve manufacturing efficiency.
Avcorp Industries is a supplier of integrated composite and metallic aerostructures based in Delta, BC.
