The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and Seaspan Shipyards (Seaspan) have announced the establishment of a new research chair at BCIT. The Centre of Welding Technologies and Metallurgy Research Chair will be the first at BCIT to be exclusively based on funding and collaboration with an industry partner and will enhance BC-based industrial research capabilities in advanced welding and metallurgy – two of the most foundational and critical areas of marine manufacturing. Seaspan has agreed to invest $1.65M over five years to fund the new research chair and a supporting centre of expertise managed by an industry professional, with instructors, analysts, and associated research equipment and materials.
