Oyedele will provide an interactive overview of current capacity as well as future plans, including some $8-million worth of additional technologies and capabilities that will be available to Manitoba’s manufacturing and aerospace sectors in the coming years.

VTEC: Innovation and Applied Research in Transportation (2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.)

Join instructors, students and industry to learn about the Vehicle Technology & Energy Centre (VTEC) and how you can collaborate with the centre. Red River College is playing a key role in vehicle innovation, research and testing. Join this interactive forum to talk about VTEC and some of the dynamic work and partnerships taking place at Red River College. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how Red River College can help increase research capacity for small and medium-sized enterprises and how VTEC is partnering with large players like New Flyer.
