Leading Innovative Impact

University students are learning hands-on engineering basics through innovative partnerships between universities and Tetra. By joining the national Tetra network, university students get to work side-by-side with industry professionals and people with disabilities to design and build innovative assistive devices.

“I enjoy volunteering with Tetra because I get to use technology to make a positive difference in someone’s life. The Tetra Society gives students a perfect opportunity to work with experienced mechanical engineers with real world design.”
- Jason Cheung, is a graduate of Biomedical Engineering from Simon Fraser University. His volunteering experience led him to a job at GF Strong Rehab Centre, a leading rehabilitation centre for spinal cord injuries.

"Volunteering with Tetra has given me the opportunity to work on valuable, real-world skills which are not available in the classroom setting. The ability to work face-to-face with an actual client, develop a tangible device from beginning to end, and most importantly creating something meaningful for someone in need"
- Josh French, 4th year Electrical Engineering Student
