Our work-term student Matthew Kurylyk (halfway through his last year of SAIT’s Chemical Laboratory Technology program), has always been passionate about the environment. Originally from Saskatoon, he moved to Calgary with his family when he was five years old.

Kurylyk’s work term started in January 2015 and ends in December 2015. He assists ARIS in its Environmental Technology applied-research projects. This ranges from making chemicals, setting up software, running lab instruments and compiling and interpreting data. During one project, he worked with industry partner 3E Remediation Dynamics Inc. (3E) to test a new soil conditioner in treating chloride-impacted soils.

“It has been really interesting to see the entire process of having a client come in, developing a plan, and providing them with the results. It has been really good being here and getting the experience,” he says.
