Michael Purdy (MSc, EIT)

Junior Engineer (Orpyx Medical Technologies Inc.)

“I have wanted to pursue the biomedical field since I was a high school student – a mash-up of biology and engineering, I mean, that’s so sci-fi! My research in the area only solidified that desire. The engineering challenges that surround biology, specifically around personalized care, prevention, and chronic nervous system conditions are among the most important that we will address this decade. The future of healthcare is incredibly exciting, and I am passionate about directing my interest and training towards bettering the well-being of others.”

Michael Purdy - With a passion for innovation and entrepreneurship, and a background in biomedical and electrical engineering, Michael has steered his career towards biomedical device development. Michael completed his Masters in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Calgary, researching and designing implantable devices for nerve regeneration post-injury. Interested in both research and the startup world, he found an overlap in these passions at Orpyx, a company that creates wearable sensor-based technologies to help predict, prevent, and manage chronic health conditions.


Tyler West

ICEcube at DIRTT Environmental Solutions

Always continue learning and never be afraid to tinker and try new things. STEM careers are focused largely on experimentation and research - if “making things work” is your passion, then a STEM career is for you.

Tyler West - My love of computers and technology started when my parents bought their first home PC back in 1998. All throughout high school I focused my electives on technology - enrolling in courses such as new media production, animation and web development. Upon graduation from high school, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in technology. I was accepted into the Computer Technology diploma program at SAIT. Currently, I am a Virtual Reality (VR) expert who works at Ice Edge, a wholly-owned subsidiary of DIRTT (Doing It Right This Time). My focus has been on finding novel ways to integrate VR into our client-facing experiences. I couldn’t ask for a more fulfilling experience!
