October 14, 2016

The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and Southern Alberta Institute of Technology have together received more than $50M in new funding from the federal government. NAIT will receive roughly $35M to construct the Productivity and Innovation Centre, a facility that will support the institute’s many applied research programs. SAIT will receive nearly $21M to fund three distinct projects: the Green Building Technologies Lab and Demonstration Centre, upgrades to the school’s John Ware Building, and mechanical/electrical improvements to the Senator Burns Building, projects that are expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at SAIT by 10%.
