What is Applied Research?

Humber Applied Research & Innovation helps faculty and student research teams collaborate with industry or community partners in order to help solve a specific problem. 


Whether it's building a prototype, or coding a new business's website, or discovering the most efficient method for a company to reach its clients - a team of student research assistants works with a faculty member and industry or community partner to create and innovate. Applied Research & Innovation works with faculty and students in all eight of Humber's schools to provide opportunities for students to apply classroom skills towards measureable and practical outcomes.


Working on an applied research project within a team of passionate and determined Humber students and faculty not only provides a great experience, but also helps build resumes and is a perfect opportunity to network with professionals. It allows students the chance to try new things, push themselves, and put the skills they're learning to use in a real-world situation - an experience that provides an understanding and appreciation for what's happening in the classroom and how it applies to real job settings.
