Learning Factory

Learning Factory for Advanced Composites

Integrating advanced manufacturing with basic and applied research, UBC’s Innovation Precinct will feature a Learning Factory for Advanced Composites complete with a fully integrated suite of R&D facilities, academic and industrial infrastructure, and data-rich production facilities in place to lead an exciting revolution of advanced materials manufacturing and aerospace technology. Akin to a teaching hospital, where research can be directly translated from theory to trial in a real-life production environment, the learning factory will be the first of its kind in Canada.
