History, Affiliations and Rankings

R.J. Johns, T.O. Durin, and Otto Peters founded The Industrial Vocational Education Centre in the mid-1930s, which was the forerunner to RRC Polytech. The Notre Dame campus was built in 1963, and the college's name was changed to Manitoba Institute of Technology once more (MIT). The Manitoba Institute of Applied Arts (MIAA), which occupied half of the campus, was a separate arts and science complex. In 1969, the two halves merged under the name Red River Community College (RRCC), and in 1998, the word "community" was dropped, resulting in the current RRC Polytech.
