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.

Oki, Âba wathtech, Danit'ada, Tawnshi, Hello.

SAIT is located on the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of Treaty 7 which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Îyârhe Nakoda of Bearspaw, Chiniki and Goodstoney.

We are situated in an area the Blackfoot tribes traditionally called Moh’kinsstis, where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. We now call it the city of Calgary, which is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
