Technology Access Centre for Aerospace & Manufacturing
Red River College has a wealth of equipment, facilities, and capabilities that cater to both the manufacturing and aerospace industries; these resources can all be accessed through the College’s Technology Access Centre for Aerospace & Manufacturing (TACAM). The video below provides an introduction to industry in what this TAC is all about.
Funded in part by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada’s (NSERC’s) Community and College Innovation Program, the TAC supports both large and small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) by providing enhanced access to RRC’s technological assets, subject matter expertise, and specialized facilities and equipment. Organizations benefit by gaining access to technology and expertise that was previously unavailable directly to industry.
Note, the TAC has it’s own website, which provides an industry portal through which aerospace and manufacturing organizations can view RRC’s resources, including:
- Information on full-time student programming (from which they can draw their future workforce)
- Information on hiring co-op students and interns
- Information on facilities and equipment available to assist them in projects
- Information on how the College can support industry through applied research, technical services and training activities.

JOE JUSTICE of Team WIKISPEED was in Winnipeg in 2013 to lead 200 participants in the building of a car during the first workshop of its kind ever held in Canada: WINNISPEED. The 100+ mile-per-gallon prototype car that Team WIKISPEED created in just three months was built from scratch during the workshop.
