How We Work

ARIS delivers operations and support services to industry and internal partners at all stages of collaboration. Service starts with the initial inquiry about engaging SAIT in an applied-research project. Once a project's potential is evaluated and approved, and the appropriate area expert/researcher is engaged, the project is facilitated on behalf of our industry or student partners. 

Throughout the project, industry clients receive the following services:

  • Advice on intellectual property and patenting

  • Prototype design/fabrication

  • New product testing 

  • Market analysis
