The new Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering will provide approximately 28,400 square metres of exceptional space to support expanded educational and research activities in the Faculty of Engineering. Construction is scheduled to be completed in mid-late spring of 2015. 

The Faculty of Engineering has a strong focus on the recruitment of outstanding students, the recruitment and retention of outstanding faculty members and providing an exceptional educational and research environment for all students and staff. The Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering will strongly support the achievement of these goals.


Housing faculty members, staff and students from every engineering discipline, the Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering will be a hub of activity providing greater opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration among professors and students.
