UBC has been designated a 'Centre
of Excellence' by the federal
government for research into microelectronics, and will receive up to $1
million over the next five years from
the ministry of industry, trade and
Senator Ray Perrault, who made the
announcement June 26 at a breakfast
news conference at the Faculty Club,
said UBC was chosen "because of its
proven capability in the industrial
application of micro-electronics and its
accessibility to the industries that will
make use of its services."
He said other centres will be located
at the University of Toronto, the
University of Sherbrooke, the
University of Manitoba, the University
of Alberta, and at a still-to-be-selected
centre in the Maritimes.
The UBC proposal was prepared by
Prof. Larry Young of electrical
engineering and was supported fully
by Simon Fraser University, the
University of Victoria, the B.C.
Institute of Technology, various B.C.
scientific and research organizations
and the electronics industry in B.C.
"This cooperation was clearly
evident to the government," Senator
Perrault said, "and augurs well for the
future development of the Centre of
"In particular I wish to acknowledge
the energy and leadership shown by
Dean Wedepohl (Martin Wedepohl,
dean of applied science) who, more
than anyone else, pulled together the
various interest groups and led the
development of the proposals which
has become a reality today."
The senator said the microelectronics lab at UBC is
acknowledged as one of the finest
among universities in Canada.
"This well developed existing base
should develop into a centre which can
work with industrial companies, and
other research facilities to:
— produce prototype and small
production runs of custom integrated
circuits for local industry and research
groups at a level of technology
comparable with the most advanced
industrial practice;
— undertake research contracts in
the mainline of current research;
— develop new types of devices for
direct sale or licensing;
— provide an excellent level of
education for graduate and
undergraduate students;
— provide advanced training for
personnel from local industry."
Dean Wedepohl said the UBC
facilities will be open to researchers
from other universities and industrial
Provincial Universities Minister Pat
McGeer said establishment of the
center "gives UBC a big leg up in
prestige. "It's reckoned this field will
grow thousands of times in a decade.
Television actress Cheryl Ladd of "Charlie's Angels"fame visited the UBC
campus late in June for a filming session in the Nitobe Garden. She stars in
hour-long TV film which will be shown in Japan and other Asian centres with
the aim of promoting tourism to British Columbia.
For some, summer means study
So you think summer is for sunning
on the beach, sleeping in and heading
off on vacation?
That's not the case for over 4,000
students who arrived on campus this
week for some 350 courses being
offered during UBC's 1981 Summer
Session. Summer Session began
Monday (July 6) and continues until
Aug. 15.
Dr. Norman Watt, director of
Extra-Sessional Studies, says UBC's
summer session enrolment is mainly
comprised of school teachers who
come to the University to upgrade
their education and regular winter
session students who are picking up
additional credits.
The enrolment in summer session is
about the same as last year, according
to Dr. Watt. The number of students
enrolled in spring session this year rose
about 20 per cent to 3,517.
The Summer Session Association,
headed by Michael Grice, has events
planned throughout the summer for
people on campus in July and August.
The association will have an office in
the Student Union Building, and you
can also check bulletin boards around
campus and the UBC Calendar for
details of activities. UBC Reports July 8, 1981

UBC, Cariboo
plan Hat Creek
coal conference
The economics, technology and
environmental ramifications of the
proposed Hat Creek coal-fired thermal
energy project of B.C. Hydro will be
examined at an October conference
being planned by the University of
B.C. and Cariboo College.
Dates for the Kamloops conference
are Oct. 14 through 16, with the first
day devoted to a field trip to Hat
Creek Valley.
Presentations will be directed to the
need, economic viability and
environmental impacts of the project
as viewed by the developers and by
experts from government, industry and
the private sector. Topics such as
waste disposal, gaseous and heavy
metals emissions, impacts on other
resources, alternate technology and
alternate uses of Hat Creek coal will
also be discussed.
More detailed information on the
conference is available from Graham
Drew at UBC, 228-3270.
subject to reconsideration in 1982.
The suspension has been prompted in
part by budgetary constraints but also
takes into consideration the availability*-
of similar post-doctoral awards from
the three national research-funding
agencies. The suspension of the
associateships will enable the council
to increase its funding of Killam
Research Fellowships, which are aimed^
at established scholars, as well as to       »
consolidate and strengthen the
financial base of the Killam Program.
The Canada Council also has
changed the terms of the Research
Fellowships, by establishing a ceiling
of $50,000 on the stipend portion of    •*
the award. The Research Fellowship
now will include full or partial salary
replacement to a maximum of
$50,000, plus fringe benefits.
Applicants whose actual salaries
exceed this maximum may request fulU
fringe benefits based on their full ^
actual salaries.
Finally, the council announces that
beginning in 1982, one Izaak Walton
Killam Memorial Prize will be
awarded annually. The new $50,000
Prize, which honors outstanding <f
lifetime achievement in the natural       '
sciences, medicine or engineering, was
launched in 1981 with three awards.
As a result of the changes, the
Killam Program next year will offer
only Research Fellowships, for which
the application deadline is October 15^
1981, and the Izaak Walton Killam
Memorial Prize, for which the
nomination deadline is also October
15. UBC Reports July 8, 1981
Jane Hudson, head of the
physiotherapy division of the School of
Rehabilitation Medicine has been
named a life member of the Canadian

V.J. Modi wins Jacob Biely Prize
A man whose research has been
applied to both Russian and American
earth satellites has been awarded the
Jacob Biely Prize this year at UBC.
Prof. V.J. Modi of UBC's
Department of Mechanical
Engineering is internationally known
for solutions to ensure earth satellites
remain precisely oriented in space.
Though a satellite may be placed in
correct alignment with the earth when
launched, a number of factors tend to
make it deviate from this prefen-ed
orientation. Among them are the force
of gravity of the earth and other
planetary bodies, the earth's magnetic
field, aerodynamic effects and
disturbing forces due to solar
Prof. Modi and his students have
evolved methods to estimate the
disturbing effects on many types of
satellites and correct them. The
feasibility of his methods has been
proved by several U.S. and Soviet
His work promises to extend the
useful life of satellites and provide
enormous cost savings. His research
will grow in importance as satellites
increase in the size of their main body
and in the size and length of flexible
components such as solar panels and
antennae. A large number of the next
generation of communications
satellites belong to this category.
Prof. Modi's studies on the effect of
the sun, moon and other planetary
bodies on the motion of a satellite, in
the scientific literature referred to as
"many body problem," represent a
major advance since the pioneering
contribution by Lafrange in 1772.
He is participating in a proposed
experiment on the Space Shuttle which
involves using a 100 km long tether for
charting the earth's magnetic field.
His research interests span several
areas including aerodynamics,
biomechanics and ocean engineering.
Recently his group developed a
prosthetic mitral heart valve of
considerable promise. He is currently
involved in development of a low-cost
wind operated irrigation system
particularly suited to small farms in
developing countries. Recently Dr.
Modi was made Associate Fellow of
the American Institute of Aeronautics
and Astronautics and Fellow of the
Canadian Aeronautics and Space
The Prof. Jacob Biely Faculty
Research Award is UBC's top research
prize. It was established by Prof.
Biely's brother George in 1968. Prof.
Biely, an internationally-known
poultry scientist whose association with
UBC covered half a century, died June
3 at the age of 78.
Geoscience departments earn praise
UBC's two geosciences departments
— geology and geophysics and
astronomy — receive much favorable
comment in a 154-page study included
in the 7th annual report of the
Canadian Geoscience Council.
The two-year study, which included
visits by the study's authors to
university departments, documents
nearly all aspects of teaching and
research in the 40 geology and
geophysics departments in Canadian
The study shows that UBC has one
of the largest geology and geophysics
undergraduate enrolments in Canada,
ranking fourth in size behind Toronto,
Calgary and Queen's, that it has one
of the larger graduate enrolments in
Canada and that in 1980-81 UBC
ranked third in Canada behind
Toronto and Alberta in the total
amount of money granted for research
by the National Sciences and   '
Engineering Research Council.
Here are some other comments on
UBC in the report, culled from a
number of its chapters.
"Of the 77 geophysicists in our
universities. . .61 per cent received
their doctorates in Canada (chiefly at
Toronto and British Columbia. . . ."
"... the geology departments at
British Columbia, Memorial, Queen's,
Calgary and Waterloo are in
handsome new buildings. . . specifically
designed for the needs of their earthy
"The largest and oldest established
school, particularly those with
powerful geophysical research teams
such as Toronto, Alberta and B.C.
have the most expensive
instrumentation which has been built
up or patched up over many years."
"Most professors. . .felt there had
been improvements in the quality of
students over the past few years. Thus,
the Geophysics group at UBC claimed
that it is now attracting some of the
brightest students in physics. . . the
geology group at UBC reported that
the average quality was about the
same but that there were more bright
stars than in the past."
UBC's geophysics department
received a rating of 3.45 in a survey of
20 oil companies which were asked to
rate undergraduate training as it
pertained to their needs. "Our
committee," the report comments,
"decided that those schools receiving
3.0 or more points from five or more
companies were providing a very
satisfactory service to the
industry. ..."
A Yale University professor, asked to
comment on undergraduate training
in the geosciences in Canada, wrote:
"... I have been impressed in recent
years with some undergraduates from
UBC, Toronto and Queen's."
"Geology at Queen's, UBC and
Alberta has had a comparatively long
history of graduate studies by
Canadian standards. . . .Also, the
three have had long and successful ties
with industry. . . where their graduates
are prominently placed.... these
schools attract graduate students on
the basis of their reputations and from
referrals from former graduates
". . .the highest average grants to
individual departments go to
geophysics at York ($25,061), Toronto
($24,803), Alberta ($24,564) and
British Columbia ($24,198)."
"Sixteen of 20 petroleum
companies. . .claimed to have had
research dealings with geology or
geophysics departments. Eleven
companies had been involved with
Calgary, six with Memorial, five with
British Columbia
"The universities most frequently
mentioned in connection with
sponsored theses and joint studies
(with mineral exploration companies)
were: Western Ontario, Toronto,
Queen's, Carleton and British
On Canadian geophysics: "... a
few who have had international
impact and are world class scientists
are located at: Toronto, Alberta,
British Columbia ...." — A
California Institute of Technology
Geochronology and isotope geology:
"... I must pay tribute to the
imaginative and creative age and
isotope work that has been carried out
at several Canadian universities,
particularly Toronto, Alberta and
British Columbia ...." — A leading
U.K. worker in isotope geology.
Mineralogy: "... bright spots in
mineralogy in Canada exist at British
Columbia, Carleton, Ottawa,
Manitoba, Calgary ...." — A U.S.
professor of mineralogy.
Paleotology and biostratigraphy:
"The departments of botany at British
Columbia and geology at
Saskatchewan and Toronto would be
competitive with any institutions in the
U.S " — A U.S. authority on
Permafrost and preglacial research:
"... Canadian workers are among
the best in the world. I know of
nobody anywhere who ranks higher
than (a UBC geographer) ...." — A
former director of national and
international research institutes.
"At UBC . . . co-operation in
teaching and research seems to be
firmly established .... In fact, on
this campus, integration of endeavors
between physical geography, civil
engineering, soil science, botany and
geology seem to be on at least as firm
if not a firmer footing than that
between geology and geophysics." UBC Reports July 8 1981
