CMC Microsystems is pleased to welcome the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) to its national network of micro-nano innovator institutions.
Their addition is the latest example of CMC supporting colleges’ research in this field and increases CMC’s member network to 58 universities and colleges across Canada.
Membership gives UNBC’s innovators access to CMC’s extensive offering of industrial-grade products and services for designing, making and testing the hardware innovations that are essential to tomorrow’s advanced technologies and products. These resources also help students gain the advanced R&D skills that companies need to compete.
“Having access to this technology will assist our researchers and students in the Master of Engineering in Integrated Wood Design to discover sustainable and innovative wood solutions,” says Dr. Geoffrey Payne, Vice President Research and Graduate Programs at UNBC. “These tools will enhance learning opportunities and create unique collaborations between the university and industry.”
“UNBC is doing leading-edge work in engineering with two state-of-the-art facilities devoted to wood innovation design and research,” says Gord Harling, President and CEO of CMC Microsystems. “Their distinctive expertise in high-performance, smart buildings is a timely addition to our Canadawide ecosystem of researchers and students.”
