A chance to excel in Canada

Together, the students and their professor developed a system to visualize the evolution of a software program from its first inception to the latest edition. The system provides useful information to software engineers and designers as they continually advance computer software packages to be faster and more user-friendly for new computer operating systems.

Driving innovation through research collaboration

Before Binbin Wang’s Mitacs-Accelerate internship with energy company Nexen Inc., he knew “next to nothing” about crude oil trading.  In four short months, under the guidance of Dr.

Taking the pulse of new life-saving Smartphone application

Vicky comes to Canada from the Beijing Institute of Technology in China, where she is working towards a Bachelor’s degree in Computing Science.  She chose to apply to the Globalink program over others because it engages students from different countries, which has allowed her to network globally during her exchange: “You can really feel the collision of cultures here through Globalink – I think that is really unique.”

Magical Innovation in 3D

With new broadcast television channels playing stereoscopic content, there is an increasing need for stereoscopic animated shows and commercials.

Kick-starting a career in Southern Ontario through Mitacs Enterprise

After finishing a diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology from Sheridan College, Gurpreet was keen to put his skills and education to use. However, with limited job experience, landing a full-time position proved difficult. After learning about Mitacs Enterprise, Gurpreet partnered with Mississauga-based Avnan Electro, a global supplier of electrical components. The six-month internship was instrumental in providing him with the industry connections and experience he was looking for.

Solidifying the foundations of community causes

As property values in surrounding neighbourhoods have increased, not-for-profit organizations in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, which provide services to some of Canada’s most vulnerable people, have felt tremendous pressure to secure spaces where they are needed most. For Watari, an organization which provides counseling and support to at-risk citizens of Vancouver, this meant exploring the idea of purchasing a single-resident occupancy (SRO) hotel to be its new permanent home.

On the forefront of green technology

The company is working with tight industry deadlines, hoping to commercialize their fuel cells for use in consumer vehicles within a few years’ time whilst competing against the likes of Hyundai and Toyota.  As part of its bid to be on the cutting-edge of the technology, AFCC engaged in a Mitacs Elevate Post-Doctoral Fellowship with Dr. Ehsan Sadeghi of Simon Fraser University to develop accurate models of platinum alloy catalyst deployment used in the operation of a vehicle fuel cell.

A Canadian science adventure

The third-year electronics and communications engineering student from the Indian School of Mines will be contributing to more energy efficient heating and air conditioning systems in commercial buildings. The goal of this Mitacs Globalink project will be to implement a wireless sensor network of devices which will communicate with each other to monitor environment conditions such as temperature and pressure, turning on or going to sleep on-command.

Canada is his oyster

In collaboration with fellow Mitacs Globalink student Nayantara Duttachoudhury, he has developed a system to visualize the evolution of a software program from its first inception to the latest edition. It’s something like being able to see —in a simple, compact way— the changes of internal computer code from the first-ever edition of “Multi-tool Word” in 1983 to the current Microsoft Word 2010. This type of information is useful to software engineers and designers as they continually advance software to be faster and more user-friendly for new computer operating systems.
