Han Chen, a Mechanical Engineering Masters student at McGill University, has created what amounts to a virtual factory, where new tools and equipment can be designed and tested, significantly reducing their real-world production time and creating a lot of opportunities.
“When we do a study like this, it lets us answer the question of how our rivers and forests are doing, it lets us know what our company’s water footprint looks like, and it gives us opportunities to be a good corporate citizen."
"With these new, shorter tests that are easier to administer, family doctors will have access to a quick snapshot of what a patient’s mental or cognitive health is like, allowing them to provide support and get into prevention a lot earlier.”
“Mitacs has been phenomenal. Its programs help us develop better long-term relationships with graduates and their professors, which gives us access to more ideas and talent that we can develop in the future.”
Teledyne was connected to Mitacs... to prepare an application for funding of a large-scale research project valued at nearly $1.7M. The company matched the funds for 15 interns from the two universities to develop infrared technologies for the company’s latest products.
