• The energy sector in Sarnia has contributed immensely to the economic development of our province, providing employment to tens of thousands of people in the region. Throughout its almost 50 year history, Lambton College has been an integral partner with the energy sector as the primary supplier of talent.

    With the development of the Sustainable Chemical Alliance, the Bio-Innovation Centre, and the Western Research Park, a steady stream of bio-industrial companies are selecting Sarnia-Lambton as their ideal location, and some are moving forward with plans for significant capital investment. As the only post-secondary provider in the area, Lambton College is superbly positioned to deliver relevant, career-focused education to support the needs of these industries, the community, and the province of Ontario. Our expertise in this sector also distinguishes the College on a provincial and national level.

    In June 2015, Lambton College established the Centre of Excellence in Energy and Bio-Industrial Technologies, with distinctive programs, applied research, and community and industry engagement initiatives that will raise Lambton College’s visibility and reputation nationally and internationally.

    Vision

    Lambton College's Centre of Excellence in Energy and Bio-Industrial Technologies will be a national leader in education, innovation, and applied research and development for process industries.
