Applied Sciences, Skilled Trades and Technology

The Bay of Quinte Skills Centre

The Bay of Quinte Skills Centre is a technology and trades training centre of choice for Southeastern Ontario. As a society, we need skilled workers, particularly in emerging labour markets such as architecture and building sciences, automotive, electrical, welding and manufacturing. In The Bay of Quinte Skills Centre, students train on the latest equipment to prepare for in-demand jobs in these fields.

Completed in 2011, the 121,800-square-foot Skills Centre features 50,950 square feet of repurposed ‘green’ space, and an additional 70,850 square feet of new, flexible space for teaching, laboratories, shops, research labs and classrooms. The new space is linked to the repurposed space with a beautiful Link Lounge, featuring a living wall that cultivates a self-sustaining vertical garden of about 345 plants creating a biofilter system to improve air quality. The Skills Centre earned LEED® Silver Certification from the Canada Green Building Council in recognition of the College’s achievements in energy-efficient design, construction and operation.
