As technology progresses at a rapid speed, it’s creating unparalleled global connectivity and is causing constant change in the way we work. To flourish, we must evolve with it.

By harnessing the opportunities available, we can be a driver of change.

To do this, it’s necessary to invest in technology and innovation, sustainable practices, and applied research to ensure that we’re ready for what the future has in-store.

Through collaboration, we can create solutions, build a more resilient workforce and develop a sustainable future for Nova Scotia.

Your support makes it possible for us to prepare students and the province to respond to the needs of the industry with a competitive advantage.

Innovative Programs

Access to Technology Access to Technology

During the COVID-19 pandemic and move to remote learning, it became clear that many students do not have their own computers or access to the internet at their homes. We were able to loan 1,867 devices to students to meet this need, but these devices need continual maintenance and replacement.

Applied Research Applied Research

This partnership opportunity is available through our applied research team. This is a very customized offering where we pair an industry partner or community member with a project from our Applied Research team. Projects cover a variety of industries and focus areas.

This initiative helps raise funds for smaller research projects and encourages innovative thinking and opportunities for the students while at the College.
