Welcome to the Office of Applied Research
Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning (CCITAL) supplies applied research
and business development services to business, industry, and service organizations in fields consistent with our academic programs. The foundation for applied research rests on our faculty, their significant “hands-on” experience, and their advanced academic credentials.
Applied research at Conestoga is a logical extension of our historically strong relationship with local business, industry and institutions, and will serve to support the provincial and federal goals of increased productivity and enhanced training opportunities for our students. Applied research will take place primarily through industry “pull” with industry driving the research and development agenda.
The major objectives of applied research at Conestoga are to:
- Support local business, industry and institutions in their efforts to innovate, and improve their products and processes through applied research activities.
- Enhance student education and research skills through applied research opportunities.
- Promote the professional development of college faculty and staff through research opportunities.
We invite you to explore our website and learn more about Conestoga's research capabilities. Don't hesitate to give us a call to learn more about our organization, how we operate, and how we can work together. Conestoga is open for business, and we look forward to hearing from you!
