A core piece of Humber College’s polytechnic identity is hands-on learning, and the College offers students the chance to enhance their education through work-integrated learning and paid research positions that provide important experience that prepares them for their future careers.
Humber’s programs offer unique work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities that prepare students to be the problem solvers of tomorrow and allow them to apply what they have learned in class in real-world environments. These include field placements, practicums, clinical placements, co-operative work terms, internships, applied research projects and service learning.
Further, Humber students can engage in research projects where they work with a team of their peers while building their resumes and networking with industry professionals.
Humber’s Office of Research & Innovation leads the College's research activities by bringing together industry and community organizations, researchers, and students to collaborate on projects that use new or existing knowledge to solve challenges with immediate practical applications.
“Humber works to provide students with opportunities to collaborate on research projects alongside faculty and industry partners so they can gain experience solving real-world problems and apply classroom learnings,” said Ginger Grant, dean of Research and Innovation at Humber. “Our goal is to empower students with the hands-on knowledge to be career-ready after they graduate.”
Student can also pursue paid research positions.
Each year, Research Infosource Inc. ranks Canada’s 50 research colleges and the 2022 list was recently released, showing Humber ranked third among large institutions for paid student researchers and fifth among large institutions for research partnerships.
