The Industrial Trades and Technology Centre

Thompson Rivers University

The new building, which is directly located behind the existing school of trades and technology, will host a variety of new programs that will bridge the gap between fields such as engineering and trades, according to new dean of trades, Baldev Pooni. The building will also help the school of trades in the expansion of existing programs.

TRU president Alan Shaver hopes that with the new addition of this facility, TRU will be able to provide education students need to survive in local industries.

“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,” said Shaver on the first day of the facility’s construction.
