The College of Science, Technology and Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago (COSTAATT) will officially open its seventh campus and first purpose-built facility, in Chaguanas on Wednesday 25th January, 2017 from 10:00 a.m

The new COSTAATT Chaguanas Campus is located on Pierre Road Connector and currently occupies 65,000 sq. ft. of the 35-acre plot allocated to the College by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago in 2012. The new building, which represents Phase I of the development of the site, comprises three stories of mixed-use space, with classrooms, laboratories, a lecture theatre, library and student support services to facilitate programme delivery, and office and administrative space for campus and central administrative staff. 

The Honourable Anthony Garcia, MP and Minister of Education, will formally open the campus and deliver the feature address. Other speakers on the programme include COSTAATT Chairman, Mr. Sheldon Cyrus, and President, Dr. Gillian Paul; as well as representatives from NIPDEC and NH International, the project manager and contractor respectively. 

The Chaguanas Campus can accommodate a maximum of 2500 students and is currently home to the College's performing arts students. Other programme areas that will be offered at the campus in the coming months include information technology, business administration, management and entrepreneurship,  environmental health, occupational health and safety, journalism, social work, psychology and graphic arts to name a few. 

The opening of this signature facility is indicative of COSTAATT's continued commitment to providing access to high quality education to citizens across Trinidad and Tobago. The College's administration looks forward to working alongside various stakeholder groups in central Trinidad to develop and offer programmes and services that will further enhance the capabilities of its workforce.
