November 14, 2011

Last Wednesday, Alberta-based Lakeland College officially reopened its upgraded Applied Engineering Building, whose modernization received an $11.5-million contribution from the provincial government. Now housing welder and steamfitter-pipefitter programs at the Vermilion campus, the facility features 75 combination welding booths, each with a fume extractor. Improved functionality of the space has allowed Lakeland to incorporate a plasma cutting table, sub arc welder, and a special testing station for B Pressure recertification. Lakeland News Release
