Hundreds more Alberta students will be able to study in tech-related fields this year, after the province announced it was adding 406 additional seats at post-secondary schools.
“We all know that Albertans need access to high-quality opportunities to succeed in the tech sector,” said Advanced Education Minister Marlin Schmidt.
“Because of our efforts, 406 more Albertans will be able to study in their chosen field this year and will be prepared for success.”
The seats are part of a five-year, $50-million investment into the province’s tech sector, and by 2023 Alberta plans to add 3,000 new seats in tech-related, post-secondary fields.
