Our Impact

A Powerhouse of Technological Innovation

Located at Humber College’s North Campus, The Barrett CTI is a 93,000 square foot stand-alone facility, designed to be a powerhouse of technological innovation and to leverage Humber’s proven leadership in:

  • Automation and robotics
  • Systems Integration
  • Design
  • Augmented and Virtual Realities
  • User Experience Testing

Cutting Edge Resources

Working with our industry partners, we are able to provide small-to-medium size enterprises (SMEs), faculty and students with cutting-edge resources throughout the Barrett CTI’s many interactive labs, technology zones and maker spaces. Partners, SMEs, faculty and students work together as collaborative teams to tackle business challenges. In pursuit of solutions to real-world business challenges, collaborative teams have access to technology and equipment that includes Advanced Automation and Robotics, augmented and virtual realities and prototyping labs, to name a few. While businesses benefit from having access to these resources, faculty and students get hands-on experiences while working with leading-edge equipment and technologies.
