The McIntosh Engineering Scholarship Fund, administered by mining consulting firm Stantec-Mining, presented a donation of $83,000 to Cambrian College in support of Cambrian’s mining, civil, and geological engineering technology programs. The funds have be used to purchase new, industry-standard survey GPS equipment that will enhance the level of hands-on training provided to students. Funds will also be used to establish 23 new scholarships and bursaries that will be available for students in engineering technology-related programs over the next five years.
Representatives from Stantec-Mining and Sokkia, the equipment provider, joined Cambrian President Sylvia Barnard, students, and faculty for a media conference to announce the gift and to view a demonstration of the types of projects students will undertake with the new equipment.
“I sincerely thank Stantec-Mining and the McIntosh Engineering Scholarship Fund for their investment in our students and their confidence in the future of Cambrian College,” said Sylvia. “It is the strength of these industry partnerships that enable us to provide quality programs and training and to make our graduates job-ready.”
