February 13, 2017

Thompson Rivers University has formally broken ground on its new Industrial Training & Technology Centre, which will help TRU expand its trades and technology programs by additional 550 full-time student spaces. “This new facility will enable Thompson Rivers University to co-locate trades and technology programs, a move that supports our university’s contribution of relevant education and research to various industry sectors in Canada,” explained TRU President Alan Shaver. The centre was funded by the federal and BC governments, along with contributions from TRU and various donors. It is expected to be ready for use in Fall 2018. BC | TRU
