Red River College (RRC) is the province’s largest institute of applied learning, with eight campuses and more than 200 degree, diploma, certificate and apprenticeship programs. RRC is currently in the process of developing an all-electric transit bus and charging system. This is just one of its many research endeavours in environment and transportation—a key issue for Winnipeg, which is a major transportation hub.
RRC’s diverse program roster includes hospitality, business, education, trades, health sciences and engineering. Suite-style student residences are available at the Winnipeg campus. Applied research and innovation at RRC centres around vehicle technology, sustainable infrastructure, digital technology, aerospace manufacturing, applied business research and health, nutrition and social sciences.
An advantage of RRC’s size is its diverse industry partnerships and many specialized training and research facilities. These include the Electric Vehicle Technology & Education Centre, and Centre for Aerospace Technology and Training. Students have the opportunity to apply their learning while networking in their field of choice.
RRC is a member of Polytechnics Canada. A polytechnic is a skills-intensive, technology-based institute. It typically has close industry ties, emphasizes applied research and innovation, and offers four-year bachelor’s degrees.
