CANADA’S TOP 50 RESEARCH COLLEGES 2015, CEGEP OF SAINT-HYACINTHE WITH CTT GROUP COMES 2ND IN CANADA AND 1ST IN QUEBEC
On October 22nd, Research Infosource Inc. a specialized magazine released its annual Canada’s Top 50 Research Colleges. For this year’s edition, the Cégep of Saint-Hyacinthe and its two affiliated Centres for the Transfer of Technologies – CTT Group and CINTECH – decided to take part in the survey conducted within the Canada’s Innovation Leader project. For their first participation, CTT Group and the Cégep of Saint-Hyacinthe entered directly the Top 3 becoming the 2nd best college research of Canada and the 1st among the 17 Quebec institutions present in this Top 50.
This exceptional result was achieved thanks to several years of significant financial and human investment with the purchase of new cutting edge equipment, often unique in Canada and the recruitment of researchers and engineers, as well as working with teachers and students to unsure that innovation and research is a priority.
This feat outlines, once more, CTT Group’s status of leader in the textile industry and contributes to its national and international recognition/outreach.
