Hat’s off to Research & Innovation’s Graduating Class of 2023

Congratulations to the class of 2023! This milestone is the culmination of plenty of hard work, focus, and dedication for all our students. I’d like to give a special congratulations to those we have had the privilege of working with at Research & Innovation, from a variety of Niagara College programs. We’re honoured that we’ve been able to be a small part of your story while at Niagara College, whether that was through your junior or senior co-op, or part-time as a research assistant with one of our four Innovation Centres. Many of you have gotten the chance to work in labs, present to industry partners, and get unique real-world experience to add to your resumes, and we hope that helps you stand out in the workforce.

Graduates, now is the time to celebrate this massive achievement and give yourself a pat on the back. You made this happen, you put in the hard work and effort to make the most out of your program and now you have an amazing education under your belt. At Research & Innovation, we can’t begin to tell you how impressed and proud we are of you all. Wishing you nothing but success and a bright future ahead.

Don’t forget to check in with us anytime, let us know where your career has taken you and remember, our doors are always open.
