Canadian varsity’s prosthetics workshop

The Times of India featured workshops conducted in Mumbai by Mina Hoorfar, a professor and director of the school of engineering at UBC’s Okanagan campus.

The workshop centred on the uses and function of human hands and Hoorfar said the goal was to encourage people to work in engineering.

“One of the objectives of the workshops is to get more international students interested in engineering. The second objective is to get more female students interested in engineering. People in this industry design devices for healthcare and these are among the most important commodities in any country,“ Hoorfar said.
