Sault receives $2M from ON to support school of engineering

Sault College will receive $2M to support the construction of a new School of Engineering. The funding comes from the Government of Ontario’s Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation. “We’re going to have laboratory space for the students with process automation and mechatronics equipment in it,” said Sault VP of operations Colin Kirkwood. “We’re going to have a space that’s dedicated for student projects, and the projects are going to be done in partnership with industry.” The Sault Star reports that the college plans to spend $5.3M to upgrade learning spaces for students in its four-year mechatronics engineering degree program, which was launched in late 2020.
