It has been an amazing time at AXIS. They're building a suite of connected devices that are designed to save energy, primarily in the commercial sector. The technology we are creating automates window shades in commercial buildings and has been proven to significantly reduce energy consumption.

The program so far has been excellent, and has allowed NSCC to expand research activities in the general area of applied oceans research.
