Recent Projects

There are three basic categories for research projects at Conestoga:

Each project category offers its own unique opportunities for the participants to explore.

Independent Projects

Independent applied research projects are normally characterized as large projects (outside of normal curriculum) requiring external government funding and taking six or more months to complete. These projects can provide the maximum flexibility and opportunity for companies to invest in new ideas in a cost effective way.

Curriculum Projects

Curriculum-based applied research projects are aligned with the course curriculum. They involve many of the students in the class and normally take less than eight months to complete (in order to align with curriculum requirements). Companies have the opportunity to engage an entire class on solving a particular problem.

Capstone, Final-Year or Thesis Projects

Capstone, final-year or thesis projects provides an opportunity for students to engage with companies or organizations directly (usually in small student teams) to solve or explore a specific problem. These projects normally run between four to eight months depending upon the program. Conestoga hosts hundreds of these projects each year.
