Centre for Applied Research & Innovation (CARI)

The Centre for Applied Research and Innovation (CARI) is home to BCIT’s 3 dedicated research groups: MAKE+, NRG and SMART, as well as ARLO, the research office providing support to researchers across BCIT.

CARI has 34,000 m² of lab space, 10 research labs, over $34m in lab equipment, and 45 researchers with expertise in a wide variety of areas and disciplines. For over 30 years, CARI has used these resources to perform applied research for industry, helping companies produce new, commercially relevant technology products and applications. In addition to our work with industry, we are proud of our work with students and faculty across BCIT and beyond. Learn more about how you can work with us below.
