New training for an emerging world

Abstract:

In a world where technology is evolving at an ever-increasing rate, it has been said that the job you may do in the future may not even exist yet.

NAIT's new Nanotechnology Systems diploma -the first such diploma in Canada -is evidence of that reality. The two-year program, launching in September 2010, will provide graduates with the skills to operate systems and equipment associated with Canada's emerging nanotechnology industry.

The Canadian nanotech sector is just beginning to emerge, and Alberta is a major player. The Alberta government unveiled a nanotechnology strategy in 2007, outlining an investment of funds and infrastructure aimed at capturing a $20 billion share of the worldwide nanotechnology market by 2020. Alberta now boasts a growing nanotech enterprise sector of more than 40 companies, with many located in the Edmonton region. Labour forecasts for the sector project very strong growth.
