Imagine conducting your research in facilities that closely simulate your workplace. George Brown College labs are ideal for practical research that’s quickly sped to market. Whether it’s for creating a prototype or innovating new approaches to healthcare, each lab is first-rate in its discipline:
Simulated Practice Centre
The Simulated Practice Centre (SPC) mirrors an in-patient hospital setting. The centre is equipped with high-tech mannequins, “SimMan” and “SimBaby,” that serve as patients. The mannequins can be programmed to experience changes in heart rate, blood pressure and breathing, all of which are then monitored by students in the traditional manner.
Hospitality and Culinary Art
The Culinary Studio operates as a test kitchen and a research facility, supervised by a food scientist and a chef. The studio is equipped to conduct theoretical nutritional analysis, develop accurate ingredient declarations, create and test consumer recipes, develop food products and conduct sensory evaluations.
School of Design
The Game-Design laboratory features a simulation game-design environment with Virtools and Alien Brain Servers, Valve Source Engine, 3D Studio Max, Peripherals and game stations.
Institute Without Boundaries
The Institute Without Boundaries is an interdisciplinary studio equipped to examine issues of housing, water and sustainability. The institute recently launched its new World House project for research and prototype development related to sustainable housing.
The StudioLab is a graphics and new-media-design laboratory with bindery, on-demand printing. The laboratory enables students to work on real-world projects for clients, including not-for-profits, and to publish in-house editorial projects.
Construction and Engineering Technologies
The Centre for Construction & Engineering Technologies features numerous shops and laboratory facilities for its disparate array of industries. The computer labs are equipped with the latest industry-recognized 2D drafting and 3D modeling software. The hands-on laboratories include concrete and masonry, general construction, plumbing, heat, refrigeration and air conditioning, carpentry, plumbing, sheet metal and steamfitting facilities
