June 5, 2017

Red River College has received a $500K donation from the Gene Haas Foundation to build its new Skilled Trades and Technology Centre, which is scheduled to open next year at the college’s Notre Dame Campus. An RRC release states that the centre will house new laboratory and shop space, as well as classrooms for up to 1,000 students training in high-demand trades and technologies. The building will be home to leading applied research, technology and innovation in the fields of robotics, automation, advanced manufacturing, and more. “Not only will our Skilled Trades and Technology Centre expand our applied learning environment, it will foster a collaborative approach within our program areas that will have a positive impact on our pre-employment training, applied research projects, and overall student success,” said RRC president Paul Vogt.
