Winnipeg Technical College to unveil new campus Tuesday

  • Print

Winnipeg Technical College will officially open a $1.98 million, 50,000-square-foot addition and 25,000-square-foot renovation at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

The new Fultz campus, across the street from the Henlow Bay campus in southwest Winnipeg, which cost $1,987,000 and took nine months to complete, is home to several existing WTC programs, and makes room for new pilot programs and developing industry partnerships. Technical Drafting, Electrical Applications, Industrial Electronics and Carpentry all found new homes when they located to the large new workshops, with soaring ceilings and ample space for new equipment.

The space also facilitates a burgeoning industry partnership between WTC and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 2085 (IBEW Local 2085) that will enhance apprenticeship training for electrician journeypersons-to-be. While WTC provides classroom and workshop space, instruction and tutelage., IBEW Local 2085 will fund quality training for their members, including textbooks, state-of-the-art equipment, and overhead, WTC officials said.
