TRU to build new $30M trades centre

September 22, 2016

Thompson Rivers University will be building a new $30M Industrial Training and Technology Centre thanks to joint federal-provincial investment and gifts from donors. TRU states that the centre will be able to offer an additional 550 seats in a number of existing programs, as well as in a new power engineering diploma, a new HVAC/refrigeration technician program, and an industrial process technician and instrumentation engineering diploma. “The new centre will co-locate trades and science programs together to provide unique benefits supporting TRU’s contribution of relevant and applicable research to various industry sectors in Canada and provide rewarding careers for our students,” said TRU President Alan Shaver. The building is expected to be ready for occupancy in the fall of 2018. TRU | BC
