Trent & UOIT team up to offer innovative "virtual" science program

December 13, 2007

Trent University and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology have launched an effort that will bring students from both institutions together in a virtual classroom.  AccessGrid technology allows partnering institutions to work together across geographical barriers -- creating the opportunity for highly specialized programming, as well as research collaboration.  The Trent-UOIT Master of Science in Materials Science will be the first time this technology has been used to deliver a complete program.  "Students will have access to a wider range of research and educational expertise than you could expect to access at any one institution."
