Subaru Canada donates display to SAIT Polytechnic

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) continues to 
bolster post-secondary automotive programs in Canada, today announcing its 
support for SAIT Polytechnic's School of Transportation with the donation of a 
drivetrain display. This new learning tool allows a view of the inside 
workings of an automobile with the body removed. 
The drivetrain will be on display at the main west entrance of the Clayton 
Carroll Automotive Centre for current students to view. It will also be 
incorporated into various events and tours when visitors pass through the 
Automotive Centre. As a learning tool, it will be used in component 
identification, aiding entry-level classes in the Automotive Service 
Technology diploma program, the Automotive Service Technician apprenticeship 
program as well as the Parts Technician apprenticeship program. 
Before reaching SAIT Polytechnic, Subaru's drivetrain display travelled across 
the country as part of the Canadian auto show circuit, illustrating the unique 
layout of the SUBARU BOXER engine and the Subaru symmetrical full-time 
All-Wheel Drive system. 
"Subaru is pleased to lend support by providing this great visual aid," said 
Shiro Ohta, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc. "Earlier this summer, 
Subaru donated a drivetrain to the Automotive Business School of Canada at 
Georgian College. We're thrilled to support as many schools across the country 
as we can. We're proud to be a part of the learning process, while introducing 
a new generation to the benefits of Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel 
Drive." 
"Our current program delivers component and system training," said Matt 
Carpenter, Academic Chair, Automotive Service Programs. "The Subaru display 
allows the students to see all of the components working together." 
The School of Transportation has been part of SAIT Polytechnic since its 
inception in 1916, with the original discipline of Motor Mechanics. The school 
has grown from three courses and a handful of students to a comprehensive 
provider of programming, ranging from automotive, aviation, heavy duty and 
rail. The School of Transportation operates from three different campuses: 
SAIT Main Campus (the Clayton Carroll Automotive Centre), the Mayland Heights 
campus with the Centre for Rail Training and Technology and RV Excellence 
Centre, and the Art Smith Aero Centre located at the Calgary International 
Airport.
