NSCC suspends power engineering technology program at Marconi campus

July 28, 2021
Nova Scotia Community College will be suspending its Marconi campus’ power engineering technology program. NSCC reportedly gave no reasons for the suspension, but has said that it will still be offering the same program at its Akerley and Strait Area campuses. David Pearson, VP of faculty for the college’s academic union, has questioned the speed of the decision. Program graduate Alex Gallant said the program offered a variety of advantages, such as its realistic lab, and that the program’s suspension is a loss to those in the area who want to pursue careers as power engineering technologists.
