Growing Internal Research Strength – BCIT Institute Research Fund (E/SI)

May 4, 2020 | 09:30 - 10:30

Location: 513 ABC
Track: Driving Innovation

Unlike research-intensive universities, British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT)’s role in research is characterized by our direct interaction with industry as providers of innovation and solutions for current and emerging industry problems and our deep commitment to developing learners that can supply the needs of industry. Our strategic research objective is to continue along that path while increasing and enhancing student participation in research and enhancing the role of interdisciplinary research groups within BCIT’s educational programs. This two-fold approach can only be accomplished by growing on the existing success of both research and education at BCIT. This session will discuss the creation and evolution of the BCIT Institute Research Fund program and will highlight the success of the program and outcomes for faculty.
