Labs & Facilities

Electronics Lab

This lab contains 15 stations where students are able to practice the safe and proper wiring of any number of electrical and electronic circuits. In this lab, students can learn about the theory of DC and AC circuits, basic wiring principles and the operation of many different devices such as power supplies, oscilloscopes, multimeters, resistors, potentiometers, capacitors, diodes, transistors, SCR's, digital devices, breadboards and many more.

Electrical Shop

In this lab, students and apprentices learn how to safely and properly wire a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial circuits according to the Canadian Electrical Code. Important skills are learned such as proper tool usage, safety principles such as lockout/tagout and wiring principles. Students learn about many types of circuits such as start/stop circuits, 3 way lighting and various receptacles as well as the operation of many devices such as relays, transformers, programmable logic controllers, variable frequency drives and motor control centres.

Instrumentation Lab

This facility contains many state-of-the-art technical training and research facilities dedicated to the study of instrumentation necessary for the high-tech petrochemical and power industries as well as many others. In this lab, researchers and students use the technical skills and knowledge to carry out maintenance, make a diagnosis, configure, calibrate and maintain various measurements and indicating instrumentation (pneumatic, analog, digital, etc.) in a variety of replicated industrial settings.

Motor Controls Lab

Electrical fundamentals and electrical protection is taught in this lab. The basics of AC and DC electrical theory are proven using resistors, inductors, capacitors, shunts, data acquisition software, etc. Electrical generation, transmission, and load applications are studied. Advanced power electronic control is learned using current gate bipolar transistors, thyristors, rectifiers, filters etc.

Process Flow & Controls Lab

With a glass wall looking out into the hallway, this lab focuses on the fundamentals of fluid flow, measurement and controlling a process. Students of all levels will learn the fundamentals of liquid and vapour flow, fluid and thermal dynamics and the basic fundamentals of controlling a process.
