Centre for Applied Technology
NAIT's Centre for Applied Technology is the new home of the JR Shaw School of Business.
Opened in August 2016, the Centre for Applied Technology is the largest capital project in NAIT’s history. The 51,600 square metre building welcomes some 5,000 full-time students to study in leading-edge classrooms, labs and simulation environments.
Students are immersed in real-life scenarios encountered on the job, undergoing the training necessary to use relevant technology, equipment and processes in a controlled environment.
Classrooms and virtual computer labs, where students use their own devices, are supported by an unprecedented wireless network. There are comfortable spaces for studying and socializing, plus a student project centre with desktop computers.
