By Anthony Capkun
April 3, 2014 – As a result of provincial funding announced in Budget 2014, seven high-demand programs at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) will be expanded between now and 2017 to accommodate additional students; among them, Electrical Engineering Technology and Instrumentation Engineering Technology.
“NAIT is pleased the government has allocated additional funding for programs in high demand,” said NAIT president and CEO Dr. Glenn Feltham.
The programs were chosen by the provincial government based on graduate employment outcomes, employer support, labour market demand and student enrolment, explained NAIT.
“These additional spaces are aligned directly with industry’s needs,” added Feltham.
