Applied Research

Lakeland College has everything it needs to be a trusted research partner:dedicated research facilities, full-time research scientists, instructors with industry experience, and students eager to learn and try their hand at real-life problem solving.
Applied research actually came first in our history.

Before there was a Vermilion School of Agriculture, there was a demonstration farm where the college was established.

Through the years applied research has come and gone. Now we have a research centre, and have been ranked among Canada's top 50 research colleges. Our facilities range through crop plots to a renewable energy centre. 
For our students, our applied research programs means their learning experience goes much deeper than hands-on classes. Lakeland is committed to pursuing applied research projects that enhance both teaching and learning as well as support regional economic development.
