    Drop by and check out some of the exciting projects Cambrian R&D has undertaken this past year! Students and industry partners will be on hand to talk further about these partnerships. And, of course, innovation goes better with popcorn, so grab a bag and tour our Research Showcase.

"Through applied research, I’ve been able to do a lot of cool welding that I didn’t even do yet in my program, and because of that I’ve been able to excel in my classes much quicker than if I didn’t have this opportunity."

Brandon Perron

"We cover everything from agriculture and food production to mining. All of our projects involve staff, faculty and, most importantly, students."

Dr. Mike Commito

Director of Cambrian R&D
