Graduating Students


The NSERC Strategic Research Network on Value Chain Optimization (VCO) is proud to present its recent graduating students.

Graduate and postgraduate students are at centre of VCO Network research projects. Each year there are several candidates making the transition from studies to job market. Thanks to their unique experience in the industry through hands on projects and their scientific training they are excellent future employees. There are students graduating with expertise in wood science, forestry, industrial engineering and management sciences.

To see their profile and expertise, join the NSERC Value Chain Optimization Network group on LinkedIn!
