Gene Haas Foundation labs

SAIT received a $1 million (US) contribution from the Gene Haas Foundation to support applied education in Alberta to create the labs. This funding further strengthens SAIT and the Foundation’s shared goal of training excellence in manufacturing and automation now and into the future.

As part of the School Manufacturing and Automation, these new project-based labs contain our state-of-the-art, industry-standard, computer-numerical-control (CNC) machining equipment that will aid Machinists apprentices and technicians in learning skills for this challenging and rewarding trade, including machining, machine set-up, blueprint reading, process planning, design validation, precision measurement, metallurgy and heat treatment.
