College of the Rockies’ Heavy Mechanical students will have another means of gaining hands-on experience, thanks to a generous donation of a diesel engine from SMS Equipment Inc. This donation will be used by both Foundation and Apprenticeship Heavy Mechanical students. 

College of the Rockies’ Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) program Shop Assistant, Brian Harvey, accepted a donation, on behalf of the College, of a variety of compressors and compressor components, including a natural gas compressor station, from Canadian Purcell Machinery. These items will enhance the Industrial Mechanic program by providing additional hands-on learning opportunities for students.
