By joining CMC, students, and faculty innovators at NSCC gain access to an extensive offering of world-class platforms to design, make, and test their ideas. These resources, as well as access to CMC’s ecosystem of researchers, start-ups and entrepreneurs will help students develop skills they need to thrive in the competitive, advanced technology marketplace. 

NSCC develops practical solutions for industry’s real-world challenges. Researchers and students from some of the College’s most advanced programs help industry improve their products, enhance processes and grow their businesses. In programs such as Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology, students learn the hands-on skills to install, troubleshoot, test and repair next generation systems. 

For Gordon Harling, CMC President and CEO “NSCC has a comprehensive approach to innovation and advanced technology. For example, the Design and Innovation Centre, where entrepreneurs across the province work with researchers, engineers, and students to design and build tailored prototypes and automated processes, gives students the opportunity to experience the entire innovation ecosystem and apply their skills beyond the classroom.” 

Colleges and institutes across Canada have become research partners of choice by helping thousands of businesses, entrepreneurs, and social enterprises find state-of-the-art solutions to their challenges. For Jeffrey Taylor, Associate Vice President of Applied Research & Innovation, joining CMC is another way to give their students and researchers the best tools to have an impact in the classroom and beyond. “Joining CMC Microsystems gives NSCC students access to the world’s finest platforms and tools that would normally be out of reach.
