Red Deer Polytechnic has launched a campaign pitching its unique programs, hands-on-training and applied research work.
The “Polytechnic Means More” campaign will be launched across Alberta on various platforms over the next six months
“Within a polytechnic model, our students receive outstanding learning experiences, focused on where industry is going, and the innovations required to get there. Through this campaign, our learners share their experiences about Red Deer Polytechnic’s impact,” says RDP president Stuart Cullum in a statement.
“As a polytechnic institution, we will continue to leverage our regional strengths to create a bigger and broader impact across the province, nationally and around the world. We are strongly positioned to respond to the needs of learners, industry and communities to align with the economic and social priorities of Alberta,” says Cullum.
Brett Lower, a current Bachelor of Science Nursing student and member of the Kings Volleyball team, is one of the students profiled in the campaign.
Lower says when considering post-secondary education aftergraduating from Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School in Red Deer, he wanted to attend an innovative institution that offered program excellence, technology integration, experiential learning opportunities, positive connections, and a strong athletics program.
The “Polytechnic Means More” campaign also highlights how applied research benefits students.
“By collaborating to solve complex social, technical and business challenges with industry, community partners, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders, RDP students are gaining the skills and competencies needed for their success in work and life,” says RDP.
