The College of New Caledonia has a brand new computer lab, thanks to two community partners.
Finning and Mount Milligan have donated $25,000 each to go towards the refurbishment of the computer lab.
The room has 17 new computer workstations, a television, whiteboard, and a board room table. Both companies will also have naming rights to the room for the next five years.
The room will be used by trades students in the Heavy Duty Mechanic program. The College’s Frank Rossi says the students will greatly benefit from use of the computer lab.
“They’ll work with equipment that they’ll work with in the industry first and foremost, it allows us to use software that they’ll use in the industry in our computer labs.”
