When selecting the program on our Online Graduate Application System, look for Invention to Innovation, which is listed as the "Graduate Certificate in Science & Technology Commercialization".
Please note that this is a part-time certificate program and may have some restrictions around applying for a study permit. If you are an international applicant, please connect with us via email before submitting your application.
If you have any questions during the application process, or would like information around funding and scholarship eligibility, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants should be either a current graduate student, post-doc, faculty member, or a recent graduate (within 3 years) of SFU or UBC graduate programs in science, engineering, health or environmental sciences. Candidates who don’t meet this criteria, but who are pursuing or have completed a graduate program at another institution, may be considered on a case by case basis.
If you are applying from outside of Canada, please get in touch with us at email@example.com prior to submitting an application.
We require a letter of reference from your current or previous graduate supervisor. If you are a faculty member, a letter of reference from a colleague is fine.
We’ll need a complete resume from you, showing employment, volunteer activities, education and other appropriate information.
Official transcripts for credit courses from the Registrar of each post-secondary institution you attended, must be sent directly to the Graduate Business program office. Only one copy is required from each institution. If the transcripts are issued to you, they must be signed and sealed by your post-secondary institution.
The Innovation Statement should provide the Admissions Committee with a brief overview of your academic and research background, your motivation for joining the program and an explanation of your proposed research for commercialization (a few paragraphs is fine). Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of the Innovation Statement in accordance with the criteria of the specific award.
