$25M engineering building will focus on future technologies

Oshawa, ON – The University of Ontario Institute of Technology says it will break ground next spring on a $25-million engineering building.

The new facility, a three-storey complex, will feature 38 academic offices and 17 labs, including a rapid prototyping and manufacturing lab, a combustion and engines lab, a mechatronics lab, and an emerging energy systems lab with solar, wind, hydrogen and fuel-cell technology.

“The equipment has been carefully selected to educate students about technologies of the future,” says Dr Marc Rosen, dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. “This will be a showcase for undergraduate engineering education when it opens in the summer of 2006.”
