The sky’s the limit as Centennial opens new aerospace hub

May 2, 2019

Centennial College has officially unveiled its aerospace innovation hub. The Starreports that the $72M facility will accommodate 1,000 students while facilitating new collaborations between academia and industry. Ontario contributed $25.8M to the project, the federal government an additional $18.4M, and Bombardier donated a CRJ2000 plane to Centennial, adds The Star. “This donation represents much more than money,” said Fred Cromer, President of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “It is intellectual capital, a wealth of knowledge, which will contribute to the development of the students’ sense of skills as they now have the possibility to get hands-on experience.” Star Skies Magazine (ON)
