Applied Research for Students
SAIT started Applied Research and Innovation Services (ARIS) in 2003. Today, we are a top research college in Canada. This stems from our recognition of the important role post-secondary institutions play in applying their expertise and facilities to solve industry challenges. Students are a pivotal part of this relationship, applying their learning in real-time, to real-world industry projects while they study at SAIT.
How We Work
ARIS involves students in real-world industry research projects through practicum placements, capstone projects and as student research assistants. Students use their knowledge and skills to collaborate with ARIS researchers and industry partners, contributing their own innovative ideas to the technology-development challenges organizations are here to address. This gives student researchers a leg up in the job market after graduation and provides them with work experience that sets them apart.
