Dow donates $1 M to NAIT applied technologies

October 9, 2014

Dow Canada has donated $1.05 M to the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, with $800,000 going toward the Centre for Applied Technologies and the remainder sponsoring a biennial power engineering seminar at NAIT. The Centre for Applied Technologies is currently under construction at NAIT’s main campus, and will allow NAIT to increase enrolment by 50% in health, business, engineering technologies, and sustainable building and environmental management programs. The Alberta government committed $200 M for the project. As one of the most popular programs at NAIT, power engineering technology graduates are often hired by Dow to work in one of the company’s facilities. “The power engineering technology seminar complements our hands-on education, showing students the many opportunities for applying their skills in meaningful careers,” said NAIT President Glenn Feltham.
