Lambton College Unveils New Name, New Look for Research Department


September 10, 2019

SARNIA, September 10, 2019 – Continued growth and success have led to a new name and logo for one of Lambton College’s key departments.

Moving forward, the Applied Research & Innovation Department at the College will now be known as Research & Innovation.

Mehdi Sheikhzadeh, Executive Dean of the newly named department, said the College is expanding its efforts to carry out “Discovery” research in addition to “Applied” research. Both research streams are executed in partnership with industry and other organizations. The new department title now encompasses both applied and discovery applications.

With the change in name, a newly formed Innovation Institute was also announced under the umbrella of Research & Innovation. The new Institute is going to be a driver for enhancing innovation within the College, and as such, it was critical that the term “Innovation” remain within the title.

To coincide with the name change, the department unveiled a modern new logo. The new branding helps to uniquely identify the department, an important aspect when working with so many external stakeholders. The new look compliments the College’s parent brand, and features the R and I, linking the design to the department name. The shapes featured within the design will also compliment future sub brands, currently being designed for the various research centres within the College.
