Oil Sands Power & Process Engineering Laboratory


The Oil Sands Power & Process Engineering Laboratory has been designed to provide steam time for 4th and 3rd class power engineers.

It includes a full process operations component and enables the college to create new in-demand programs such as Instrumentation, Building Operations, HVAC. In addition this lab will be a portal to Applied Research opportunities and Advanced Accreditation and Certification.

Fort Chipewyan Campus - Officially Opened September 20th, 2011

Fort Chipewyan Campus

Keyano has had a presence in Fort Chipewyan for almost 30 years and the new campus provides us with a permanent home in the community and room to provide more learning opportunities. The campus has seven classrooms, access to the Internet and a state-of-the-art library. The highly connected new campus will bring vast training opportunities to the remote community of Fort Chipewyan that would otherwise be difficult to deliver.

Thank you to the Government of Alberta, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo and our corporate partners for making this beautiful facility a reality for our students in Fort Chipewyan.
