Graduate Certificate in Science & Technology Commercialization
Transforming Invention to Innovation
“80% of PhD students in science and engineering in Canada won’t go into a career in academia. However, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) would employ our scientists, but require them to know something about new product development. That’s what we aim to do with this program.”
-- Elicia Maine, Professor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Academic Director, Science & Technology Commercialization
We developed the 12-month, part-time Graduate Certificate in Science & Technology Commercialization program to provide research scientists and engineers with the theory, frameworks and skills to commercialize their inventions and contribute to new product development and commercialization in industry.
