Our students will be applying their training and expertise to a well-defined project straight out of the energy management industry,” says Mehdi Sheikhzadeh, Dean, Applied Research & Innovation, Lambton College.
Both organizations hope to further utilize these core beliefs to collaborate on future research and development projects. This inaugural project will focus on creating a mobile solution will that will automate the service delivery of repairs and maintenance across a wide territory, while helping to manage employee safety.
