“Canadore College signed a memorandum of understanding to expand degree pathways for students graduating from environmental technician and biotechnology technician programs at Ireland’s Institute of Technology Sligo.

The agreement grants graduates holding a two-year diploma from Canadore’s environmental and biotechnology advanced standing in IT Sligo’s B.Sc. in environmental protection and B.Sc. in biomedical science programs with the ability to earn a degree with an additional two semesters of study. They are also eligible to study two more semesters to achieve a B.Sc. honours degree in either discipline.

“This collaboration is important on a number of fronts,” said Lisa McCool-Philbin, dean of Canadore College’s School of Environmental and Biotechnology Studies. “At Canadore, we endeavour to provide our students with experiential learning, meaningful academic pathways to support their career aspirations and we complement them with learning opportunities to enhance world views that are beneficial to employers.”

The arrangement will enhance learning and enrichment experiences for students and faculty from both institutions, advance the quality of career-oriented postsecondary education training and applied research, as well as provide professional development opportunities for employees from Canadore and IT Sligo.”
