The CTI will be a world-class facility, purpose-built to encourage innovation, applied research, project-based learning with industry and community partners. Instead of traditional classrooms and laboratories, the CTI will provide 93,000 sq. ft. of open concept gathering spaces, cutting-edge prototyping labs and makerspaces, interactive technology zones, digital media studios and demonstration areas for showcasing new products and technologies.
An invaluable resource for companies and communities, the CTI will bring together interdisciplinary teams of faculty, students and industry experts to solve complex, real-world problems. The CTI will act as an outsourced R&D department for manufacturing companies, providing a supportive, low-risk environment where they can experiment with leading-edge technologies and transform ideas into operational efficiencies and marketable products and services.
The CTI will provide a stimulating, hands-on learning environment for Humber students, preparing them to become the creative risk-takers and change leaders that businesses need to stay ahead of the innovation curve. The CTI will also offer state-of-the-art training facilities, equipment and customized programs to help manufacturers train their existing employees to work effectively with advanced technologies.
