Lakeland College has officially opened its new Agriculture Technology Centre. The 743-square-metre facility is located at Lakeland’s Vermilion Campus, and features a technology hub, combined lab and classroom space, and an area that can be used for demonstrations and training with large farm equipment. The new space will be used for Lakeland’s new bachelor of agriculture technology program as well as research activities. “Opening this facility represents a new milestone for Lakeland as we continue our work to provide students with opportunities to learn in real-life scenarios using transformative technologies,” said Lakeland dean of agriculture technology and applied research Josie Van Lent. “This space will be a catalyst for learning and research that will help support our province’s economy while enhancing regional productivity and sustainability.” Lakeland | My Lloydminster Now (AB)
