September 30, 2014

Lambton College has announced it will add 3 new full-time programs in 2015, including a 3-year advanced diploma in Bio-Industrial Engineering Technology that is reportedly the first of its kind in Canada. The program will offer courses in areas such as industrial enzymes and bacteria, biomass, bio-fuels, and bio-based chemicals. Students will have access to training in industry-grade learning labs within the Centre of Excellence in Energy & Bio-Industrial Technologies. “Bio-industrial Technology has experienced tremendous growth in recent years, particularly in the Sarnia-Lambton region. This innovative program is exclusive to Lambton College and was designed with significant industry input to give students the knowledge and skills required for the safe and productive operation of various bio-industrial processes,” said Ranjan Bhattacharya, Dean of the School of Technology, Energy & Apprenticeship. Lambton will also add a 2-year Electromechanical Engineering Technician diploma and a one-year Ontario College Certificate in Aboriginal Social Justice. Lambton News
