Student researchers

The REDLab provides training and mentorship to a wide range of students.  Students are engaged in most of our projects and we value the contribution that they make to our team.  Our students range from those doing their PhD to undergraduates doing their Capstone and summer research projects. We also engage students for co-op semesters and for part-time employment during the regular school terms.

Our students come from a variety of different backgrounds, including:

  • mechanical engineering
  • bio-medical engineering
  • occupational therapy
  • architecture
  • health economics

We have hosted students from both local and international educational institutes, including:
