From Virtual Reality to competency-based learning, it’s innovation that inspires this Chemical Engineering and Ingenuity Labs professor

Paul Hungler

As a Major in the Canadian Armed Forces, Dr. Paul Hungler oversaw the delivery of Augmented (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) training for military personnel. Now as an Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering and Ingenuity Labs, he’s hoping that VR/AR can similarly revolutionize the way we educate future generations of engineers.

“Getting access to things like nuclear plants or large chemical processing facilities in large group environments is almost impossible,” he said. “So being able to recreate those scenarios in virtual reality makes sense.”
