McMaster’s Office of the Vice-President, Research, is responsible for all research activities within the University and for the aggressive pursuit of new partnerships - including technology transfer and economic development opportunities - locally, nationally and internationally.  Its mandate is to capitalize on the significant research strengths across its six faculties – business, engineering, health sciences, humanities, science, and social sciences.  In 2016, McMaster’s researchers brought in some $325 million in sponsored research income, ranking the University among the country’s most research intensive.
