The Applied Research and Innovation Certificate training program is comprised of part-time and full-time internships with Selkirk Innovates, providing 400 hours of experiential learning focused on addressing real-world challenges through applied research. Each internship provides technical and professional, on-the-job skills training. Faculty provide interns with discipline-specific advisory and mentorship support. Learners are provided with the opportunity to engage in applied research focused on addressing partner needs. Interns work with their faculty advisor and external partner(s) to scope projects, undertake applied research, and provide agreed upon deliverables to partners (e.g., research report, 3D printed prototypes, development of a new/revised data analytic pipeline). Pending grant and partner funding, paid internships may be offered through an 'earn while you learn' competitive and hiring process.

Students also engage in ongoing learning seminars, networking and knowledge dissemination opportunities, and are encouraged to cross-pollinate ideas with interns from other research groups and engage in interdisciplinary research. Student learning will be evaluated through self-assessment, faculty assessment and external partner assessment according to the following learning outcomes:

  • Student is competent for autonomous, responsible and ethical practice
  • Student works with other people effectively, fairly and cross culturally
  • Student uses information in judicious ways for specific work-related purposes
  • Student is willing to continue to learn to improve practice and is able to identify areas for self-improvement
  • Student integrates theory and practice
  • Student has confidence and self awareness to seek and gain employment in a job market.
