Stronger people. Healthier communities. Cleaner environments. Sustainable businesses.
Camosun is a national leader in applied research and innovation. Through robust local partnerships we deliver profitable technology solutions while deepening our relationship with business, industry, society and our environment.
With funding from national agencies like the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and Western Economic Diversification Canada, Camosun's research services provide: industrial prototyping services; innovations for athletes of diverse abilities; environmental protection; and technology to streamline business processes, helping local industry prosper. The result is marketplace innovation, improved human performance, enhanced economic diversity and relevant social innovation.
In the seven years since venturing into applied research and entrepreneurial activities, Camosun has become a key catalyst for small- and medium-sized businesses. To further enable local industry and business, we developed Enterprise Point, a one-stop portal into Camosun's broad spectrum of professional services. Through Enterprise Point, we support a multitude of business and industry clients towards improved productivity and a greater capacity for innovation.
Camosun is home to the largest college-based applied research centre west of Winnipeg, attracting students and faculty who are looking for more than theory when learning or teaching about manufacturing, engineering and computer technologies. Camosun establishes a real hands-on connection between education and industrial application—leading to impressive economic opportunities for local industry and business ventures.
"Our industry clients frequently comment on our faculty and facilities as being ahead of the curve when it comes to services and knowledge. Our real competitive advantage is our ability to quickly adapt emerging technologies into practical business solutions," says Tim Walzak, Director of Camosun Applied Research and Innovation.
