Centre for Applied Research and Innovation

Celebrating 30 Years

This year we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of BCIT’s full-time research division at the Centre for Applied Research and Innovation. In 1989 BCIT’s mandate was broadened to include applied research and a new $1.75 million Technology Centre was created for multi-disciplinary research and development. The aim was to make BCIT’s vast expertise and infrastructure available to industry in BC to assist with research and development and taking businesses to the next level.

Over the past 30 years BCIT’s Centre for Applied Research and Innovation has established itself as an innovation hub serving local and international partners. Beyond our work with industry, CARI has shared its infrastructure and expertise with students and faculty across BCIT.
