CNRL Engineering Complex Opening

The Canadian Natural Resources Limited Engineering Complex will open in fall 2016, a major milestone to celebrate the university’s 50th anniversary. Following the official expansion opening, renovations will continue on the existing Engineering Complex, with a completion target of 2017.

The expansion has contemporary classrooms equipped with the latest learning technologies and state-of-the-art labs for hands-on innovative experiences. Students will benefit from team and club offices for competition and community work, a career centre for professional training throughout their education and space to host student events and think tanks. New dry and wet labs will expand research capacity across all disciplines and increase graduate student spaces.
