Broad spectrum of student projects at Sask Polytech Applied Research Student Showcase

Student Showcase displayed 40 student applied research projects


June 4, 2019 – Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Applied Research Student Showcase shared 40 projects focused on solving real-world problems.

“One of the main differences between Sask Polytech and other post-secondary institutions in the province is our strength in applied research,” says Dr. Larry Rosia, president and CEO. “Applied Research is where ideas intersect with reality and solutions to challenges are developed. Thank you to our industry partners in attendance for supporting our students. Congratulations to all the students in this year’s showcase on a job well done.” 

Sask Polytech students are encouraged and supported by faculty to partner with business, industry and the community on applied research projects that provide real world solutions to today's challenges. When business and industry partners work with students, they get to keep the research findings. Participating in applied research gives students hands-on experience to transition seamlessly into their chosen career and positions them as an employee of choice in today's competitive job market.

“The Applied Research Student Showcase demonstrates the innovative thinking that exists at Sask Polytech,” says Kevin Rogers, acting associate vice-president, Applied Research and Innovation. “All students participating today have previously received a $1,000 scholarship to assist with their research to date. Congratulations to this year’s winners. You truly are leading the way!”
