Students will benefit from $1-million WorleyParsonsCord Ltd. donation
A $1-million gift from WorleyParsonsCord Ltd. will benefit NAIT students and support campus expansion.
“As a leading Canadian polytechnic, NAIT must grow to continue meeting Alberta’s need for skilled workers,” said NAIT President and CEO Dr. Glenn Feltham. “This generous gift will go a long way in supporting NAIT students and our essential expansion requirements.”
Two laboratories – one at Souch Campus and one at Patricia Campus – will be named in recognition of WorleyParsonsCord’s investment.
“Our investment in NAIT and its students demonstrates the synergy between WorleyParsonsCord and this great polytechnic,” said Brad Van de Veen, WorleyParsonsCord senior vice president and general manager. “We hope this contribution will allow NAIT students to continue to receive the absolute best training to enter Alberta’s workforce. As a leading industrial construction company in western Canada, we recognize the vital role that skilled workers play in not only our industry, but the entire province.”
WorleyParsonsCord provides fabrication, module assembly and construction services for oilsands, conventional oil and gas, petrochemical and thermal power facilities in western Canada.
NAIT’s largest-ever capital project is currently under construction at Main Campus. When the Centre for Applied Technologies opens in the fall of 2016, it will be home to 5,000 full-time students daily and include classrooms, simulation labs, a lecture theatre and student-focused common areas.
