With budget shortfalls for education and lack of sufficient funds from grants, institutions are eager to reach collaboration with engineering-related organizations and industries in order to adequately provide current and relevant instructional resources. Institutions are required to demonstrate their support to programs by providing adequate classrooms, laboratories and equipment to enhance students' hands-on experiences and facilitate the attainment of student learning outcomes. This paper provides a chronicle of how this cooperation was accomplished to may serve as a reference for institutions seeking additional support for their programs. It also provides examples of how the laboratories and equipment made possible through this collaboration can support engineering technology classes. This facilitates a potentially case-study like approach with discussion on the implementation following the guidelines and framework proposed by Yu et al [1].
