ULSS CREATE Graduate Program Announced

(Kingston, June 1 2011) The Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State (Science and Technology), announced today that the Government of Canada will invest $29.6 million in 18 new NSERC CREATE Programs to help young scientists and engineers acquire the professional, leadership and entrepreneurial skills they need to make a successful transition into the workplace and keep Canada's economy growing.

Among this year's grantees is a Queen's University team of 11 professors led by Prof. James Cordy, whose team will receive $1.6 million to create a unique training program in Ultra-Large-Scale Software Systems (ULSS).

"These are extensive and highly complex software systems that can process the network connections and data of millions of people worldwide - for example, financial and health care systems," said Minister of State Goodyear.

"This program is unique to Queen's University. It is not offered anywhere else in Canada or anywhere else in the world. And we see this as an opportunity for the federal government to participate in making Kingston the place to be to find this kind of expertise."
