Education, training and applied research and development institute
While the College of the North Atlantic (CNA) does not have programs directly focused on ocean technology training and research, many of its students in areas of engineering technology and information systems find careers in the ocean technology sector.
Nodes of research and development activity are present throughout the multiple campuses of the College of the North Atlantic (CNA) in Newfoundland and Labrador. These activities focus on the application of new knowledge to sustainable economic activity and on providing solutions to industry and community needs.
The Office of Applied Research (OAR) leads and supports these research and development activities. It also leads the College’s Research and Innovation Network which coordinates the expertise and facilities within these nodes with that of the private and public sector through partnerships.
Active research and development projects in ocean technology include:
· Harnessing wave power in remote coastal areas. Applications include electrical generation and water pumping required by aquaculture sites.
· Petroleum Applications of Wireless Systems (PAWS) aims at developing a fully automated wireless control system for oil and gas installations.
