June 12, 2024 – Cambrian College is renaming its primary Electrical Engineering lab to “Eaton Electrical Lab” in recognition of its partner. Equipped with Eaton products, the lab serves as a hub for research, development, and training.

“The naming of the Eaton Electrical Lab demonstrates our shared goal and dedication to advancing education and igniting innovation,” said Cambrian’s Janice Clarke, vice-president, Academic. “We are very grateful for the generous support we have received from Eaton over the years.”

Eaton has also made a financial contribution to the construction of Cambrian’s new electric vehicle (EV) research lab, housed within the Glencore Centre for Innovation at the college’s main campus. The EV lab is part of Cambrian R&D, the college’s applied research division.

“We’re proud to work with Cambrian College and honoured to have the engineering lab named in recognition of our partnership,” said Eaton’s Harold Ruckpaul. “Hands-on and experiential learning are vital to provide students with the training and skills needed for long, successful and rewarding careers in the energy industry.”

Eaton has been a major supporter of Cambrian’s Electrical Engineering programs for years, says the college, donating electrical equipment to provide students with hands-on learning experiences.

“With the energy transition underway, it’s an extraordinarily exciting time to be an engineer, and the industry needs more highly trained professionals,” Ruckpaul added.
