Technical Training

The Northern Alberta Institute for Technology (NAIT) in partnership with the Faculty of Engineering is offering technical courses that can greatly benefit undergraduate and graduate students. These professional development courses can open doors to the job market as well as greater access to the machining equipment in engineering facilities for courses or as maker spaces (check with each facility lead prior to working with any equipment). Graduate students can use these towards up to 4 hours FGSR professional development requirements.

Current courses available for fall 2017 & winter 2018 are:
