My office overlooks the site where our new “Engineering 7” building is under construction. I’ve been taking a few photos with my Blackberry Classic over the months, and here is a pictorial view of progress so far. That’s our “Engineering 5” building in the background, where the “Sedra Student Design Centre” is located with various student design teams space.
One of the main reasons for building E7 is to provide much-needed space for undergraduate programs, especially mechatronics and biomedical engineering. However students in all programs will benefit from the larger student workshop space, the Engineering Ideas Clinic (for hands-on project based learning), more project space, and closer access to the Conrad Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology Centre (for student start-up company and innovation support). More descriptions, floor plans, and pictures are available at the Engineer the Future website.
