On behalf of Red River College I am so pleased to welcome you to the School of Construction and Engineering Technologies.
The past weeks, the halls have been full with students starting their programs whether they be an 8-week apprenticeship level, a one-year certificate program, a two or three-year diploma program or a full 4-year degree program. It is an exciting and sometimes a little overwhelming time for some students and the more informed you are the better prepared you will be to make the most of your time at a post-secondary institution.
We are glad you have chosen to become involved in the field of Construction and Engineering Technologies as it has an unbelievable number of great opportunities available. You will find that learning never really ends and the programs and courses you take are all stepping stones to your continued success.
I know staff and instructors put together very informative orientation days for you to get you started on the right path towards success in your program. So please enjoy, don’t hesitate to ask questions and remember to take advantage of all the opportunities that exist for you at the college whether it be academic support, career counseling, student association, library resources etc. to help you be successful and to thoroughly enjoy your time here.
My office is in A building A134C and I welcome your questions or comments about the programs here at the college.
